One month after he was reported missing in the interior location of Kamarang, Heimchandra Boodram Mohabir, 36, called “Collie boy or Rohan” of Claybrick Road, Canal Number Two, West Bank Demerara, is yet to re-appear. His relatives are adamant that foul play was the cause of his disappearance.
According to the man’s wife, Somwattie Mohamed, she along with relatives visited the Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee on March 25, 2011 and stated their concerns and suspicions about the disappearance of her husband.
She said that Minister Rohee made an offer of assistance, and she told him that the police accompanied by search dogs would greatly assist in finding her husband’s body. “He (Minister Rohee) said he would have got back to us but to date nothing has happened.”
Ms Mohammed said that after noticing that they were not contacted based on what the Minister had said she decided to call on multiple occasions. “The secretary said that the Minister said he is fed up with the calls.”
However, she said that relatives visited Kamarang and spent four days but were unable to locate her husband.
In frustraton, Ms Mohammed said that she lodged a complaint with the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) about the sloth and lackadaisical attitude of the police in their investigations.
It was also disclosed that the prime suspects into the disappearance are related to a senior police officer in the police force and no proper investigation is being done.
“We believe he was murdered because he said he had problems with his workmates,” the missing man’s wife said.
Mohamed explained that the father of two has been working in the interior frequently for the past eight years as a welder, fabricator and operators of machines. From February 2, last, he left to work at Kamarang in the Mazaruni.
On March 3, last, she was told by her husband’s employer that her “husband fall overboard and he was not found.” However, before his disappearance she received three phone calls from her husband that were distressing.
“He tell me he and some workers got problem. I told him come home but he said no, that he boss man ain’t deh and he got to take care of something.”
She explained that her husband was second in charge after the General Manager where he worked, and the following day after she received the report of her husband’s demise she visited “Kay Enterprise” at Thomas and Middle Street.
There she was told that her husband was missing in an accident. “So I ask how? They say that the cook say that he foot was hurting, and the G.M (General Manager) say he couldn’t drive the boat and a next boy accompany them and they told me husband to bring out them.
“After they reach the landing the cook and the other boy left for the landing and my husband and the G.M went back in, and the G.M say how (the husband) went to tie the boat and he fall over.”
When this newspaper tried contacting the Minister of Home Affairs the security officer said the Minister Rohee is not in office.
