Court

Two women appeared at the High Court in Lautoka yesterday on their murder charges.

Sundar Kaur, 48, and Geeta Devi ,28, are charged with one count of murder each while Devi is also charged with one count of providing false information to a public servant.

Kaur was granted bail by Justice Aruna Aluthge yesterday.

She is alleged to have murdered her 14-year-old daughter Sanjani Lata, who was also known as Mona.

The incident happened at Kulukulu, Sigatoka, on November 1, last year. It is also alleged that Devi told a Police officer that Ms Lata had been missing since noon of November 1 despite knowing that the information was false.

The pair was represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer, Vasemaca Narara. The court heard that the State had filed disclosures when the matter was called on December 15, 2015, and had sought time to file information.

Ms Narara said Devi was yet to file her bail application.

Justice Aluthge granted bail for Kaur with a non-cash bail bond of $1000, for the accused to provide one surety, not to interfere with any prosecution witnesses and to visit the nearest Police station on the last Saturday of every month from 8am to 6pm.The case will be called again on January 19 for mention.
