Operation Bastille update 2

Operation Bastille update 2

Friday, 8 August 2014 - 5:32pm

Counties Manukau

Police investigating the homicide of Davender Singh have continued a thorough scene examination today. This includes the area around Norman Spencer Drive and the car in which Mr Singh was found, which has since been removed from the road.

Detective Inspector Dave Lynch says Police have retrieved CCTV footage from a nearby business which has enabled the investigation team to narrow down timeframes that are of interest.

“Police can confirm that Mr Singh and his partner stopped outside the Manukau Events Centre in their vehicle at approximately 7.20pm on Thursday evening. It is evident that at the time Mr Singh was murdered, a large number of vehicles including a number of buses passed the vehicle.

“Motorists passing by may recall seeing Mr Singh's silver Honda motor vehicle that can be seen with its indicator flashing. Police are particulary interested in further information on another vehicle that was parked behind Mr Singh's which left the scene prior to Police arrival,” says Detective Inspector Lynch.

An item of interest (a personal belonging of the victim) was located in Kenderdine Road, Papatoetoe. Police are still searching for a sharp object that is believed to have been used in Mr Singh’s murder.

“We ask that anyone who drove down Norman Spencer Drive between 7:20pm and 7:45pm on Thursday night and might have seen Mr Singh’s car parked outside the Manukau Events Centre please come forward to Police,” says Detective Inspector Lynch. “Additionally we would like to know more about the car that is seen parked behind Mr Singh’s vehicle.”

Counties Manukau Police can be contacted on 09 261 1300. To provide information anonymously contact the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Note: in the photo attached Mr Singh’s car is located at the top right, with the unknown car parked behind (to the right of) it.

Patience: Drive Safe

Be patient before passing is the AA's message for drivers this Labour weekend.

"People taking crazy risks to get past other vehicles is one of the most dangerous things on the road,” says AA spokesperson Dylan Thomsen.

“The weather is looking good for the long weekend so the roads will be busy. Unfortunately, that also increases the chances of people getting frustrated and trying a risky passing manoeuvre. When they get past, there will probably be more traffic up ahead anyway so it won’t get people there faster.” More>>
