Employer denies failure over killed security guard

6:14 pm on 5 July 2012

The company charged in relation to the homicide of a security guard in Auckland is denying the allegation.

Charanpreet Dhaliwal died of head injuries after being assaulted in November.

It was the 22-year-old Indian migrant's first day on the job and a man has been charged with his murder.

The Department of Labour says CNE Security, which employed Mr Dhaliwal, has been charged with failing to provide a safe work environment.

The security company has pleaded not guilty.
