Tractor pins E’bo farmer to death
Danraj Suerattan, a 42-year-old labourer of Suddie Housing Scheme, lost his life after the tractor with which he was ploughing a section of a rice field at the Suddie New Housing Scheme, toppled and pinned him, resulting in his death. He was an unlicenced driver.
Krisnanan Singh, Suerattan’s uncle, said that his nephew left his home at the New Suddie Housing Scheme for the back dam, with another man from the same village.
On Monday, persons within the Suddie New Housing Scheme area relayed the sad news about his nephew’s death. Singh said that he was told that his nephew was ploughing someone’s rice field when the accident occurred.
Singh said that due to the position the tractor was in after the incident, persons who converged at the scene were unable to render assistance to Suerattan.
“We could not have seen his body; one of his legs was barely showing.”
He said that it later took another tractor to help extricate Suerattan’s body from beneath from the tractor.
Suerattan worked previously at the Suddie Funeral Parlour. He has left to mourn four young children.
Police are continuing their investigations into the matter.
