A mother of seven lost her eldest son yesterday after he was stabbed in his abdomen by his fishing colleague and bled to death while walking to a nearby cousin’s house in Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) for assistance.
Dead is 20-year-old Suresh Ramnarine of 209, Zeelugt South, EBE. His attacker is in police custody at the Leonora Police Station. Reports reveal that the attacker who also lives in Zeelugt inflicted the wound with a sharp fishing blade.
According to the dead man’s mother, Vilo Ramnarine, her son was a fisherman who worked on sea.
The woman said that she did not witness with incident but was informed by a resident that her son was in deep trouble.
“I was washing wares when I get a call saying something wrong with my son by the seawall side and I must go fast. By the time I go out on the road and wait on a taxi, they tell me that my son get stab up. When I reach with the taxi, I see my son bleeding on the ground. I could not watch! His eyes were already partly closed and only a slight whiteness was at the bottom of his eyes,” Ms Ramnarine lamented.
“I don’t know if they had any fight or argument because ‘Burnham’ (his attacker) told the police that my son ask him to go on sea with his crew, but ‘Burnham’ said he was full up and they get some argument and ‘Burnham’ say my son chuck he and he decided to stab him up.”
She explained that her son would normally work with another set of fishermen but he decided that he would make a trip with a different crew.
“They were drinking,” Ms Ramnarine noted.
When this newspaper arrived on the scene another relative was overheard shouting, “we want justice and if we don’t get justice we gon kill am and place am six feet under…When he (Ramnarine) was walking to go by his cousin, you could see how far he walk and how the blood left a trail until he fall down and dead.”
Relatives described the fisherman as a loving and easy going person. His mother said in all the years of her son’s life she had never had a complaint about or problems with him.
