Seven kidnap suspects go home


ALL the suspects who were in custody for the kidnapping of businessman Sooklal “Tarzan” Ramroop have been released.

Ramroop was found in the mangrove in Marabella last Friday. Hours earlier he went to apartment buildings at St John's Village near San Fernando after three people told him they were interested in renting one of the rooms. A relative soon after received a telephone call from a person who demanded a $700,000 ransom. 
 
Ramroop's recovery and the arrest of the group, which included two women, were made on Friday following operations by police officers from various units including the Air Support Unit. The Trinidad and Tobago Regiment and Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard were also involved.

The suspects were kept at separate police stations and interviewed by detectives of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit and San Fernando Criminal Investigations Department. They were released on Thursday night.

Investigations continue into the matter.
