Woman Charged In Trinidad Who Claimed She Was Abducted

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Reshma Maharaj, a 30-year-old woman, who claimed that she had been abducted for three days and kept in a car trunk, has been charged with wasting police time.

Police officers, on Monday, found a woman, from south Trinidad along the M2 Ring Road, who told them she was kidnapped last Friday.

She alleged that she was driving along the M2 Ring Road when a vehicle pulled in front of her and three men came out, grabbed her and forced her into their vehicle. She further told the police that the men kept her captive in a house and on Monday left her in the trunk of a car.

She claimed that she was gagged with cloth and her hands were bound with tape during the ordeal, but she escaped after kicking out the back seat of the car.

Reshma Maharaj, a secretary at a doctor’s office, was arrested when she returned to the San Fernando Police Station south of here on Tuesday and charged with the wasteful employment of the police by knowingly making a false report that she was kidnapped by three men.

Maharaj has been charged with making a false report and was subsequently granted TT$15,000 bail to reappear in court Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

She later appeared before a Justice of the Peace but was not asked to plead to the charge. The offence carries a maximum sentence on summary conviction of a fine of TT$1,000 and to imprisonment for six months.
