The hunt is continuing this morning for remand prisoner Peni Nakarawa who escaped from a Police vehicle while being escorted to Suva from Lautoka yesterday.
Police Chief Operations Officer ACP Abdul Khan says Nakarawa escaped with three others along the Nadi Back Road upon returning from their trial in the Lautoka Magistrates Court for cases of Aggravated Robbery.
He says the other three were recaptured immediately while Nakarawa is still on the run.
ACP Khan says roadblocks have been erected throughout the Divisions and anyone with information regarding Nakarawa's whereabouts is requested to call Crime Stoppers on 919 or their nearest Police Station as Nakarawa is considered to be dangerous.
He confirms that the Commissioner of Police has directed the officers who were conducting the escorting duties be investigated for the incident and they will be sent on leave pending the outcome of the internal investigation.
