A family already in grief has been plunged into more sorrow following the stabbing to death of a man who was acting as a peacemaker at his mother’s wake.
Dead is Surujpaul Ramnarine 51, a father of five, of Blairmont Village, West Bank Berbice. Reports are that Ramnarine was stabbed in his chest around 12:10 hrs on Saturday morning after he intervened in an argument between the man who killed him and his nephew.
At the time family members and relatives were holding a wake for Ramnarine’s mother at Rosignol, West Bank Berbice. The woman died last Tuesday.
According to information, the suspect is an in-law of the dead woman. He had been making threats earlier.
Ramnarine reportedly tried to tell his assailant to behave himself since he was at a wake house and that his behaviour was not appropriate. With that the man took out a knife which he had concealed on his person and plunged it into the region of Ramnarine’s stomach. He then bolted.
On being stabbed Ramnarine staggered into the yard, and collapsed. He was picked up and rush via car to the Fort Wellington Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The man who lost his wife in July lived with one of his daughters. He worked as a labourer in the rice industry. He would return home occasionally. He had returned on this occasion after the death of his mother who is due to be buried today.
Ramnarine also lost his nephew during October last year. Vickram Ramnarine, called ‘Boy’, 29, was found floating in a canal at Abary, West Coast Berbice. His body had marks of violence.
Relatives described the dead man as a quiet, simple and friendly individual who would not get into trouble with anybody.
The man who stabbed Ramnarine is a father of five, including a 10-day-old infant.
Investigations are ongoing.
