A search is currently underway for remand prisoner Peni Nakarawa who escaped from a Police vehicle while being escorted to Suva from Lautoka yesterday.

Nakarawa escaped with three others along the Nadi Back Road upon returning from their trial at the Lautoka Magistrate Court for cases of Aggravated Robbery.

The other three were recaptured immediately after while Nakarawa is still on the run.

Roadblocks have been erected throughout the Divisions and anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is requested to call Crime Stoppers on 919  or their nearest police station as Nakarawa is considered to be dangerous.

Members of the Public are advised that harboring a prisoner is an offence and is requested to call Police.

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.
