Seven years after the events, the constable, Shayntish Appadoo returned to the dock on Wednesday April 24. He faces trial for murder in the Intermediate Court.

Shayntish Appadoo, also known as Shane, aged 34, and resident of Mahébourg, is accused of inflicting assault and battery on the late Santa Rao Appadu, aged 79, without intent to kill. However, the septuagenarian did not survive the multiple blows. The events took place on March 12, 2018, in Beau-Vallon. The police officer, who pleads not guilty, is defended by Me Rama Valayden.
