Three men (including a juvenile) were remanded on attempt murder charges and an arrest warrant issued for a fourth. The juvenile has been remanded to police custody.
Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo, sitting at the Reliance Magistrate’s Court, remanded two men to prison and ordered that a 15-year-old be kept in police custody. She also issued an arrest warrant for a fourth man.
The accused appeared before her on the charge of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Joseph Grant at Levi Dam Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam, with the intent to commit murder. The incident occurred on November 19.
The men, Tajepaul Samaroo, called ‘Paul’, 20, of Angoy’s Avenue; Ryan Dhanpaul, called ‘Hulla’, 20, the 15-year-old also of Angoy’s Avenue, and Megnauth Premraj called ‘Smokey’ for whom an arrest warrant has been issued, allegedly chopped Joseph Grant in the head and beat him about his body with the intent to murder him.
Prosecutor, Corporal Roberto Figueira told the court that on the day in question, around 15:00 hrs, Grant who is related to one of the accused, was walking along the dam to visit a friend in the area when he was approached by the defendants who were armed with various implements.
Before he realised what was happening he was pounced upon and dealt several chops and lashes about his body.
Grant was later picked up and rushed to the New Amsterdam hospital and later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he remains a patient.
A report was made and the defendants were arrested and charged, while Premraj remains at large.
In opposing bail, Prosecutor Figueira pointed to the nature and gravity of the offence and added that Grant is still hospitalised at the Georgetown Public Hospital. He also said that Dhanpat was previously charged for a similar offence and only recently completed a sentence in jail.
He further said that one of the defendants has not yet been arrested. The Magistrate remanded the men to prison while transferring the case to the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court for December 28.
