Citing his elation with the charges, the President said he has “full confidence in the police force, in the ability of the Crime Chief and his team and I am very happy that we have made such progress on this matter.”

The men were on Friday morning charged and remanded for the September 2020 murders of the cousins. 34-year-old Anil Sancharra, 30-year-old Vinod Gopaul and 34-year-old, Akash Singh appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
