Detectives assigned to the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch arrested three men on March 2 in relation to the murder of Indian businessman Rakesh Talreja, during a robbery at his Cherry Gardens home in St. Andrew on Thursday, February 9.
Taljera’s murder has hit hard in his homeland of India where his parents have demanded answers from both the Jamaican and Indian governments about the circumstances of his demise. News that the cops have collared suspects in the murder should come as good news to his loved ones.
Police report that, acting on information they spotted a Nissan Tiida motorcar that fit the description of the car that was allegedly used in the robbery and subsequent murder of Talreja.
The vehicle was intercepted on Deanery Road in Kingston and the driver was arrested. Further investigations led the officers to an address in the Kingston East area, where the other two men were held and placed in custody.
On February 9, Talreja and a friend were at his home when four men entered his premises and proceeded to rob them, after which the men opened fire on the two. Talreja was pronounced dead at hospital while his friend was treated and released.
