The man accused of murdering his sister-in-law and shooting three other people in a bar almost two weeks ago, has been charged.
Tarran Nanan, 60, of Plum Road, Manzanilla, appeared before a Magistrate on Tuesday morning, but the information had not been forwarded to the court by the police.
Defence attorney Shivanand Dubay raised the issue about the police failing to submit the documents to the court.
Senior Magistrate Debra Quintyne, presiding in the Sangre Grande First Magistrates’ Court, took note of Dubay’s complaint and said the prisoner was denied his constitutional right. She remanded Nanan to prison custody to reappear on January 16, next year.
Nanan, a handyman and PH driver, was charged with the murder of 44-year-old Savitri Narine and three offences of wounding Narine’s 18-year-old daughter Nirrmalaa, bar owner Pradeep Ramsaran and patron Kurt Browne with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
The offences took place on December 9, at Bobby’s Bar, Plum Road, Manzanilla.
Nanan wept as the charges were read to him and kept looking around to see if any of his relatives were in court.
Nanan surrendered to officers at Manzanilla Police Station a day after the shooting incident and had been in custody since then.
