Theft accused in ICU, case adjourned

2014-09-29 00:00

FORMER Pietermaritzburg attorney Sundeep Singh is due to appear in court next month in connection with theft of more than R800 000.

Singh was struck off the roll of attorneys in April this year in connection with an allegation that he stole R876 736,50 from a widow, Radha Govender, who was due to receive the money from the Road Accident Fund.

The complaint was investigated by the KwaZulu- Natal Law Society, and subsequently the police.

Singh was charged with the theft in the magistrate’s court last Thursday. However, the case was adjourned to October 2 by consent in his absence, after the court was handed a medical certificate indicating Singh was in the ICU at Midlands hospital.
