Auckland City Police have made an arrest yesterday Thursday 24 following the death of Reginal Sharma in Haughey Avenue, Mt Roskill last weekend.

A 22-year-old man was arrested and will be appearing in Auckland District Court today charged with manslaughter.

“The inquiry team have worked tirelessly since the weekend to understand the circumstances of what happened in the incident.

The arrest today is an important step in the investigation and will hopefully bring some relief for the friends and family of the victim,” said Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe.

As Kaniva News reported, the 25-year-old Tongan, Fijian-Indian man who grew up in New Zealand was one of a number of separate groups that met up at the Gemini Bar in Otahuhu and then travelled to 19 Haughey Avenue, sometime after 2.30am, to continue socialising, Pascoe said.

Police were called around 3am following reports of a loud party at the address.

Upon Police arrival, Sharma was located on the driveway in a critical condition, said Detective Inspector Pascoe.

Police and ambulance staff attempted to resuscitate him, however he died at the scene.

While an arrest has been made inquiries into the incident are ongoing, Pascoe said last nigjt,

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call Auckland Police on 09 302 6557.
