A pastor from Mahaica is currently on life support at the Georgetown Public Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit after a severe beating by two men who invaded his home.
According to reports, 36-year-old Daniel Subramani, of 15 Helena, Mahaica was beaten in his head after two gunmen attacked him and his wife on Tuesday night. The incident occurred some time after 20:30 hours.
The Pastor’s wife, Praneila Subramani, was at the front of their yard while her husband went to the back to tend to a chicken pen.
“While he coming back in front I hear he shout and tell me run and when I turn around I see two men jumping de fence and one had gun,”.
The woman said that she ran toward their front door but did not make it as one of the men grabbed onto her.
“Before I reach the door the man scramble me and start shaking me asking me for the money and I fall down,”. While on the ground the woman said the man started kicking her about her body. Not long after, she lost consciousness. The woman said she was resuscitated by her 13-year-old daughter some time after.
“She came out and ask me why I left the door open and I told her that I didn’t; that it was the bandits. She start screaming and asking where her father was.”
According to Mrs. Subramani she then glanced to the back of the yard where she noticed her husband lying in a pool of blood. The woman said that her daughter began screaming and this alerted neighbors. Other relatives who also live close by responded and rushed the injured man to the Georgetown Public Hospital.
At the hospital the man remained in an unconscious state.
Meanwhile the man’s wife speculated that her husband was beaten so severely because he may have recognized his attackers. She added that the men made good their escape with a large amount of cash and gold jewellery.
“These people had to know we because they come shortly after my husband collect money from people who order baby chickens from he…He does work minibus and do the chicken business on the side,”
The woman remains hopeful that her husband will pull through and at the same time she said she is thankful that both her children slept through the ordeal.
Up to press time Mr. Subramani, who is the Pastor of Reaching the World Ministry Church, was on life support.
The matter has been reported to the police and investigations are ongoing.
