Two S Nairs Transport  workers, a 24-year-old and his 17-year-old colleague have been charged for the alleged murder of a 37-year-old welder of Naulu, Nakasi following an incident at the company’s depot in Nasinu on Tuesday afternoon.

The duo appeared at the Nasinu Magistrates Court today and have been further remanded at the Korovou Prison and will appear at the High Court next Friday.

Police have also revealed new leads into the welder’s death, stating in a statement that it was in fact the deceased who had asked the 17-year-old to turn on the steering wheel to tighten the dragging arm.

It is alleged that the 24-year-old then turned on the ignition to free the steering when the bus suddenly jerked forward and crushed the deceased.

In an earlier statement, Police had alleged that the 17-year-old had turned on the steering acting on the instruction of the 24-year-old.

The deceased was rushed to the CWM Hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
