Mash Day fatal stabbing…Two detained
The police have arrested two men from Better Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD) in relation to the death of a 25-year-old man, who was reportedly attacked by a group of men armed with broken bottles during the Mashramani celebration on Saturday.
The victim, Kumar Mohabir of Lot 7 Enterprise, ECD, succumbed around 02:45am on Sunday in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Woodlands Hospital.
Yesterday, the Police’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) Ivelaw Whittaker confirmed that two men were arrested on Monday night.
Kaieteur News understands that based on the description given to the police by the dead man’s brother, Narendra Mohabir, an arrest was made.
The men accused of the murder are currently at the Brickdam Station and according to the police they are waiting on the older Mohabir to identify them.
Narendra Mohabir also sustained multiple stab wounds, allegedly when he threw himself on his mortally wounded sibling to stop the brutal attack. He was treated for his injury and sent home, but this publication was yesterday informed that his condition worsened and he was taken back to the hospital.
His relatives said that they were forced to rush him to the hospital yesterday because some of the sutures burst and his wounds were bleeding. Due to his condition, he cannot visit the station.
“Some of his stitches burst and it was bleeding and paining him so he went back to the hospital,” the injured man’s sister stated.
On Saturday last, the brothers went to collect a tent which they had rented to one of their neighbours when the younger Mohabir left to go purchase juices. It was then he reportedly stepped on one of the men’s foot.
This had reportedly caused the men to become aggressive and injured both brothers which later resulted in Mohabir’s death.
