Twenty-five-year-old, Dhamattie Harrinarine, also known as Samantha, is now a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital after she was reportedly brutalised by her reputed husband Parsaran Mohabal, aka Rohan, on Friday, last.
The incident allegedly occurred around 08:00pm at her 18 Pigeon Island, East Coast Demerara home. She was gashed on several parts of her body, the result of what some say was a case of jealousy.
The woman sustained multiple gashes on both of her legs her left hand, head, hip and back.
The woman lamented, “I did not even know he been vex with me until he start pelt chop.” According to her, earlier in the day, when the man initially visited the house she was not at home.
Harrinarine explained that she had only a few minutes before his arrival, left the house to borrow DVDs from a neighbour. Upon her arrival she was offered wine and she accepted the offer. The woman said that her assailant soon joined her at the neighbour’s residence and bought two more bottles of wine so she assumed that all was right.
As she further related the story, the woman said that she cannot recall what caused the argument. “We start argue and he get vex and break the beer jug”. The woman explained that her assailant then cornered her in the small bedroom and mercilessly gashed her all over her body.
Harrinarine disclosed that after Parsaran finished gashing her, he proceeded to beat her with a fan. From the fan blows, the woman sustained severe lacerations to the left hand.
Upon hearing the commotion, a neighbour summoned the police to the scene. When ranks arrived, the man had already pushed his victim aside and had begun to clean an area in the room that was reportedly bloodied.
He was arrested and taken into custody at the Sparendaam Police Station while the injured woman was taken to the hospital.
With tears in her eyes as she sat on the hospital bed, Harrnarrine disclosed that she had been in relationship with her abusive lover for about five years. According to her, the man constantly abused her but she somehow could not have walked away from him. “He paid the rent”.
She added that he had on numerous occasions threatened to “chop me up but after he saying it all the time and never do it, I say he bluffing”.
“He does work in the bush and I go with he sometimes but he take away me money so I have to depend on he all the time,” said the woman.
According to Harrinarine, her relatives could not have entered the house to access any of her belongings because the man told the police that he pays the rent and that he does not want her relatives there.
Relatives of the abused woman who crowded her bedside said that they tried on numerous occasions to help Harrinarrine “but when she come by we he would want kick down the door and get on bad.”
Harrinarine told this news paper that several reports were made to the Beterverwagting Police Station about constant assaults and battery but nothing came of them. “He get nuff money; he does pay off the police, so them don’t do he nothing,” said the woman.
