Relatives of cousins Kenrick Morgan and Kendall Singh are praying that their kidnappers have a change of heart and not kill them by this weekend's deadline. A US$40,000 ransom has been demanded for their return.
Sources said that both men were from average families who could not afford to pay the US$40,000 ransom. One source said that money was owed to a Venezuelan jefe by one of Singh's colleagues.
Police Constable Ian Dwarika who was among four people charged with the kidnapping of businesswoman Natalie Pollonais has been granted bail.
Dwarika, 44, who was last attached to the La Romain Police Post, was placed on $300,000 bail by San Fernando Magistrate Kerianne Byer.
His attorney Shiva Boodoo made an application for bail on the grounds that Dwarika did not have a police record, and he had a clean history.
Photos of two of the three suspects held in the kidnapping of the UWI Commercialization Manager Maria Dass, have been circulating online.
The men were held by police last night and Dass was rescued unharmed around 8.30 pm in Caura.
The victim was taken last night by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and a team for medical attention after she was released.
The men kidnapped the woman at the St Augustine campus, with one dressed in military uniform and another in police clothing.
