As controversy surrounds the death of a Good Hope, East Bank Essequibo woman who died at a city hospital on Sunday last, police were called in yesterday, as her husband was found hanging from a rafter in his house. Thirty-nine year-old Alim Jahoor, a butcher of Good Hope, East Bank Essequibo was found hanging from a rafter in his bedroom at around 15:30 hours yesterday.
According to the man’s mother, Farida Jahoor, she was at home along with other relatives while her son was in his bedroom. The woman said that another relative who went to check on him, after he had suddenly gone silent, made the discovery. The police were immediately called in and the man’s body was removed and taken to the Ezekiel Funeral home.
This publication was told that Jahoor’s wife, Christene Persaud died on Sunday last at the Woodlands Hospital.
The man’s relative said that the woman had ingested a poisonous substance and was rushed to the hospital, where she later succumbed.
This publication was told also that this was Persaud’s third suicide attempt. She was described as a very jealous wife.
“Two times already she drink poison and we carry she to the hospital and she survive but this time she drink carbon tablet and he (her husband) carry she to the hospital but she didn’t mek it,” one of the man’s relatives told Kaieteur News.
Relatives disclosed that he was grieving his wife’s death and dismissed any notion that he was in anyway involved in her demise.
Relatives told this publication that ever since his wife’s death, Jahoor had been depressed. The couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary some two weeks ago. The dead man’s mother said her son was a very devoted husband and was very loving to his wife despite a minor mental problem.
On Sunday the man found his wife vomiting in the house and after inquiring he was told that she had ingested poison. However relatives could not say if the couple had issues but acknowledged that they had problems as any married couple would have.
“He was married before and his wife went away and left him and ever since he took it on and had a little nervous problem,” a relative said.
Meanwhile a source close to the investigation said that it is believed that Mr. Jahoor may have had something to do with his wife’s death. However a post mortem examination is expected to be done on Persaud’s remains sometime later today, which would put all speculation to rest.
