Second night in jail for Sheron
Chaguanas businessman Sheron Sukhdeo was yesterday forced to spend another night in jail after his family failed to secure approval for his bail for a second straight day.
Sukhdeo, who is charged with assaulting his wife Rachael Sukhdeo on two occasions last week, was unsuccessful obtaining approval from the clerk of the peace at the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court after he appeared there to answer the charges on Wednesday.
Sukhdeo’s relatives were again unsuccessful when they revisited the court, which is being temporarily housed at the Tunapuna Administrative Complex, yesterday.
The T&T Guardian understands that the delay was due to an administrative issue which is likely to be resolved this morning to facilitate Sukhdeo’s release.
