A gang of 10 men who thought that vigilante style was the best way to go to recover stolen chicken from a poultry farm have landed themselves in hot water with the law.
The men who were dressed in black and claimed to be policemen reportedly abducted and beat three young men who they had accused of stealing a quantity of chicken from a poultry farmer, operating in Canal No.2, West Bank Demerara.
Investigations revealed that a group of about 10 men travelling in three cars, first went to the home of Andy Singh, 17 years of Belle West, WBD, and told him that he was wanted at the police station and placed him in one of the vehicles.
They then went to a liquor restaurant and picked up Nandkumar Darshan, 17 years, and Dhanraj Chattergoon, 19 years, both also of Belle West, and took them to a poultry farm at Alliance, Canal No. 2, WBD, where they accused their three victims of stealing poultry and began to beat them about their bodies.
Later, at about 23:10 hours some of the men took the three victims to the Wales Police Station where they informed the police that they had stolen a quantity of chicken. However, the police did not entirely buy their story and launched an investigation.
The information led the police to arrest the owner of the poultry farm and four other men, who are presently in custody.
Two of the cars used by the men were also detained.
The three victims were taken to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where they were treated and sent away.
Investigations are ongoing.
