LAW enforcement officials have dismissed rumours, which they said are being peddled by known Opposition elements, that there was some form of coordination between the law enforcement agencies and owner of Keishar's store, Bramhanand Nandalall, who escaped from his kidnappers in Georgetown earlier this week.

"To suggest that our security forces had linkages or collaborated with Bramhanand Nandalall, has no factual basis. These malicious rumours are intended to question the professionalism of our ranks," an official said.

The officials made it clear that these rumours are designed to remove attention from the significant anti-crime breakthrough by the Police Force and should be ignored.

These responses were made to the Government Information Agency (GINA), which solicited comments from senior officials after learning of the rumours. (GINA)
