The body of a 54-year-old man was yesterday fished out from a trench in the farmlands of Craig, East Bank Demerara one day after he was reported missing.
Dead is Vad Narine of Lot 73 Grove Squatting Area, East Bank Demerara. A group of farmers found the body floating in the trench aback of Craig around 09:00hrs yesterday.
The now dead man left his home last Monday to go and work for one of his uncles, Leonard Bhola in his farm.
Yesterday, when Kaieteur News visited the scene, Narine’s body was already taken away by undertakers.
His uncle, Bhola, explained that Narine left him at the camp around 04:00hrs on Thursday to go home.
“Me cook fish curry and rice and give him to eat Wednesday. At 04:00hrs Thursday he tell me he want go home and I tell he that it too dangerous but he force heself and leave,” Bhola said. He added that Narine was under the influence of alcohol.
Bhola said that later that Thursday, after getting information that Narine didn’t reach home, his relatives formed a search party but failed to locate the now dead man.
A missing person report was made at the Grove Police Station.
Early yesterday, Narine’s relatives again formed a search party to look for him.
“While them boys were searching for him, some farmers told them that they passed a body floating some two and a half miles before my farm, and when they go, it was him,” Bhola stressed.
Bhola posited that Narine probably went next to the trench to drink water but fell in.
At the dead man’s home yesterday, his mother, Julie Sookdeo was inconsolable. She said that the last time she saw her son was on Saturday last.
“Thursday morning, I hear he missing and me start crying. One of my sons left to go search for him but the place was already dark so he waited until this morning (Friday) to go look for him,” Sookdeo said in tears.
She added that her other relatives volunteered to join her son in the farmlands and look for Narine.
“I can’t believe my son die. I had four sons, now I left with three,” Sookdeo cried.
Narine previously worked as a mechanic.
