A Lusignan family is still in shock after their minibus, which was safely parked under their house, mysteriously disappeared on October 2, 2009.
Co-owner of the minibus BKK 8976, Shelly Parmanand, told Kaieteur News last evening that on the day in question the minibus was parked under their lot 3 Richard Town, Lusignan, East Coast Demerara, home at around 10:30 hrs, since the driver did not turned up for work.
However, according to Parmanand the family left the house to conduct some business, and upon returning home, discovered that the minibus was missing.
Upon enquiring from persons in the Optical Clinic, which operates in the same building, Parmanand said that two men visited her home and informed the occupants in the clinic that they were employees from Akbar Auto Sales and that they were sent to retrieve the vehicle.
When Parmanand and her husband, Julian Marsarally, contacted the auto sales, there worst fears were confirmed. The auto sales never sent any of their employees to retrieve the minibus.
A report was subsequently made to the Vigilance Police Station, where the driver of the minibus was taken into custody and placed on station bail. According to Parmanand, the driver denied any knowledge on the whereabouts of the minibus.
The woman found this to be rather strange, as she noted that besides her husband, the driver was the only other person that had access to the vehicle.
At the same time also, Parmanand expressed her frustration with the police officers at the Vigilance and Cove and John Police Stations.
She explained that the officers there seem to have no interest in finding her vehicle, since she is being given the royal run around.
“Everyday I keep running to this police station and that police station…they didn’t even take a proper statement and until now, they are nowhere close in finding my minibus,” Parmanand said.
The family has owned the vehicle for approximately two years now. Anyone with information on the minibus, which is white and blue in colour are asked to make contact with the family on telephone numbers, 628-0470 or 614-7153. A reward is also being offered for any information which will lead to locating the vehicle.
