A Fijian man who murdered his ex-girlfriend and her young daughter and buried them near an Auckland bus station has lost his battle against deportation.
The bodies were only discovered in 2014 – eight years after their deaths – when Kamal Reddy confessed to undercover police officers.
He was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum non-parole period of 21 years in 2016 and the Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal against his conviction in February.
In a recently-released decision, the tribunal dismissed Reddy’s appeal, noting his murders were among the “worst of their type”.
Reddy will be eligible for deportation upon parole or the end of his sentence.
