– triangular love affair may be motive
A 24-year old Kitty Taxi Driver was shot dead in front of his Lot 25 Dennis Street, Campbellville, home in wee hours of Sunday morning.
Balram Jadoonaugth also known as “Sanjay” a driver attached to the “GR” Taxi Service, was reportedly shot in the chest and back shortly after arriving home in his car. He managed to drive a short distance away before crashing into a lamp pole.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
Relatives are certain that robbery was not a motive, since the young man was still wearing his gold chain and rings. He also had all his money in his wallet.
They believe that the taxi driver was killed because of a relationship that he had with a woman, who is reportedly married.
Kaieteur News understands that police are questioning a suspect.
His sister, Ranuka Azeez, said that her brother left the taxi service around 2:30hrs and went home. The woman told Kaieteur News that family members heard gunshots, but assumed that a car was back firing.
“My parents heard the gunshots…but they were in bed and thought it was a car or something, they never thought it would have been Sanjay.”
She said it was only after police ranks came to her parent’s home, that the family became aware of what happened. The woman said she was told that after he was shot, he managed to drive away.
However, Jadoonaugth crashed into a light pole a short distance away from his home. Kaieteur News was told that residents called the police and ambulance. The taxi driver was pronounced dead on arrival at the GPHC.
Relatives say they have a “clear idea” of who might be behind this beastly act. According to them, Jadoonaugth was threatened twice by the husband of a female acquaintance. This newspaper was further told that a report was made to the police.
