The man accused of stabbing three people in Te Puke has been remanded in custody following a brief appearance in Tauranga District Court on Monday.
Gurcharan Singh, 35, is facing three counts of wounding with reckless disregard after police found three men with stab wounds at a residential address in Te Puke last month.
The 35-year-old fruit picker was found at another address shortly after and was arrested by police.
Singh was previously denied bail as the judge cited concerns he posed a flight risk.
Singh’s lawyer Olivia Brittain sought to have her client remanded until a pre-committal hearing could take place.
Judge Paul Geoghegan remanded Singh in custody to reappear in Tauranga District Court on September 24.
