Stabbing accused to appear in court

2014-06-05 00:00

MOUNTAIN Rise police have arrested the man who allegedly stabbed and killed Sunshine bakery truck driver Hadesh Ramchunder (37).

Ramchunder was allegedly killed over an argument about two loaves of bread in Raisethorpe last Friday.

He was stabbed once in his chest. The suspect, who had fled to the Eastern Cape, will appear in court shortly.

Mountain Rise police station commissioner Brigadier Francis Bantham said five murders took place in their policing precinct during May and into June.

“All suspects in all the cases were … apprehended shortly after the crimes were committed,” said Bantham.

She said the suspects had been linked to other crimes through fingerprint analysis.

“It is imperative to point out that the success of the teams was also due to the interaction with the community and the community is encouraged to continue to support the SAPS,” said Bantham.

The community can liaise with Captain Haffajee at 033 387 9528 and 079 500 0264 — Serious & Violent Crimes and Trio Crimes Unit if they have any information that is crime related.
