Police at Vigilance on the East Coast of Demerara have detained a Lusignan man who they believe bludgeoned another villager on Tuesday night.
Ramjit Dindial, called Khrishna, formerly of Pike Street, Sophia, who recently moved to Lusignan North was pronounced dead at the Georgetown public Hospital while receiving medical attention.
Police said that around 22:00 hours on Tuesday, Dindial, 35, was walking along the roadway at Lusignan when he was allegedly struck behind his head by a man.
The suspect has been arrested and is in police custody assisting with the investigations.
The dead man’s sister, Meena, who lives in Sophia, told Kaieteur News that she was at home when at about 06:30 hours yesterday, she received a telephone call from his uncle, informing that Dindial was beaten and was at the hospital.
But as she was preparing to go to the hospital, she received another telephone call, this time informing her that her brother was dead.
“Fifteen minutes after the fuss call, he uncle call back and tell me don’t tek it to heart, he done dead,” Meena told Kaieteur News.
Neighbours could not say what led to Dindial being hit, only relating that a man had come up from behind him and lashed him with a blunt object behind his head.
They claimed that Dindial was under the influence of alcohol and was on his way to purchase Chinese food when he was attacked.
“We don’t know if was a robbery or wha. He had about $2,000 or $3,000 pon he,” a neighbour told this newspaper.
A reliable police source informed that the man who was taken into custody has denied being the person who struck Dindial.
The man reportedly told investigators that he was passing and saw Dindial being beaten and went to see what was really taking place.
However the police source said that the suspect was named as the person who beat Dindial.
“He don’t mek problem with people. He quiet and does do anything you ask he fuh do,” the neighbour said.
“When I hear he dead this morning I get a shock,” another neighbour said.
A post mortem examination will be performed on Dindial’s body today.
