Three child rape charges for guard, who gets bail

A SECURITY OFFICER charged with the multiple rape of a 12-year-old primary school pupil has been placed on $120,000 bail with the warning that he makes no contact with the alleged victim.

Parmanand Nansingh, 52 of Palmyra, was charged with three offences of sexual penetration that allegedly happened between last December and January 2018.

 Nansingh was arrested on Thursday and charges were laid by constable Nicole St John of the Child Protection Unit.

In Court on Friday, he told the magistrate he had no previous convictions.

Police prosecutor Cleyon Seedan made no objection to bail but asked that conditions be attached for him not to have contact with the girl, including on social media.

Magistrate Brambhanan Dubay granted him bail to cover the three charges. He told Nansingh that as conditions of his bail he is not to send any messages, including text messages, or make any phone calls to the alleged victim. The security officer was told that should he do such his bail could be revoked and he could be kept in jail. Nansingh is also to report to the Ste Madeleine police station as another condition of bail.

Dubay adjourned the matter to March 9.
