Corentyne fisherman, Lakeram Singh 53 called ‘Dafat’ or ‘David’ of Lot 13 Fyrish Village, Corentyne, Berbice, was stabbed to death following an altercation with one of his friends on Sunday afternoon.
Another man identified as Elton Lilley, 44, of Golden Grove, East Coast Demerara, was also injured during the altercation.
The men knew each other and were drinking at a shop not too far from the Fish port complex at Lot 47, Number 66 Village, Corentyne when an argument ensued. Singh, it is understood, armed himself with a cutlass and chopped Lilly on his hand.
Lilley in turn grabbed a knife and stabbed Singh about his body. The man was stabbed to his face, head and back.
Singh collapsed and was picked up and rushed to the Skeldon hospital where he succumbed while receiving medical attention.
Lilley escaped from the scene but was arrested. He is in police custody and is expected to be charged soon.
A post mortem examination is to be performed on Singh’s body shortly.
Investigations are continuing.
