Forty-nine-year-old Crisnauth Kassinauth of Third Street, Queenstown, Essequibo, was, on Saturday last, forcefully relieved of $350,000 while he was in the vicinity of Demico House.
Kassinauth alleged that he was hit on the head and chest with an unidentified object and collapsed.
The man said that he works with M.H. Kassim and the money that was in his possession at the time was his boss’s income from lumber sale. According to the man, the bag that contained the money also had some clothes and books. Kassinauth, who received treatment from the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), said that he reported the matter to Brickdam Police Station. However, when Kaieteur News contacted the rank identified as Detective Seeram, that Kassinauth claimed to have reported the matter to; Seeram denied any knowledge of the matter being reported.
Subsequently, the injured man contacted this publication inquiring, “Am I in any trouble?” He said that he was contacted by Seeram; asked why he reported the incident to “Kaieteur” and was told to come down to the Brickdam Police Station.
Kassinauth said that he returned to the police station with every intention of reporting to Detective Seeram but the policeman had already left. The man said that since he had to travel to the Essequibo Coast he hurried for transportation.
Last night from his Essequibo home the man said that his head was still hurting terribly. He said that his employer was very understanding and glad that the situation did not end in a fatality.
