Praveen Lata wants justice for her dead husband.

It been more than a week now and no one has been arrested in relation to the alleged murder of street vendor Lamuel Dass.

“I want justice for my dead husband and request to the Fiji Police Force to arrest and punish the suspect,” Ms Lata said yesterday.

“I was in Sigatoka with my children when the incident happened.”

It is alleged that Mr Dass, 48, was stabbed several times at a friend’s house in Sese Street where they drank alcohol. Police have sealed the house for investigations.

He was later found dead at his home in Jittu Estate, Raiwaqa, in Suva May 28 in the afternoon by his uncle Arnold Dass, 62, who stays with the family.

Ms Lata was informed by her relatives about the incident.

“When I reached home, the body of my husband was still inside the house and Police did not allow me to go inside the house and see the body of my husband,” Ms Lata said.

Ms Lata said after the incident she was staying with her children at their relatives place in Jittu Estate and came to her home last Thursday.

“Our life has changed after the death of my husband,” she said.

“I am still trying to figure it out how my husband managed to come home from Samabula that night.

“I don’t have any clue and Police are stilling trying to look for the lead.”

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said: “A number of people have been questioned and released. However, no arrest has been made so far.

“Investigators continue to plead for information about the victim’s last known movements as investigations continue.”
