Checks were made and it was discovered that the eastern chain-link fence of the court compound was detached from the post.

Singh’s whose last known address is Lot 291 School Street, Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was admitted to the prison on December 6, 2021 having been charged with two counts of possession of ammunition and firearm, and robbery under arms.
