– cops detain two
Police have detained two men and are looking for a third in connection with the murder of a 14-year-old girl,
whose body was found at around 13.55 hrs yesterday in a trench at Adelphi.
Tiana Raghber, of 32 Reliance Abandon, East Canje Berbice and a student of the Canje Secondary School, had reportedly disappeared around 21:45 hrs on Friday, after leaving her parents’ home without notifying anyone.
Her father, Jaiprakash Raghber, a construction worker, said that the family, including Tiana, had gone to a gymkhana on Friday.
They returned home around 20:00 hrs.
They proceeded to watch television and Tiana who is the eldest of two children, later, brought his food upstairs and reportedly went to fetch him something to drink.
When she did not return, he began calling for her, but got no response. Relatives began a frantic but fruitless search for the teen.
Mr. Raghber stated that he did not report his daughter missing because it was not the first time that she had left home without informing anyone.
The police had warned that she would be sent to ‘Girls School’, if she ran away again.
He said that during the search, he received information that a body was found in a trench at Adelphi. His worst fears were confirmed when he arrived at the scene and recognized it was his daughter.
When she was found she had wounds to her eye, forehead and face. According to information the police were tipped off by an anonymous caller.
According to the man, when his daughter was found she was clad in blue jeans and black and white top. The man said that his cell phone was missing and he suspected that his daughter had left home with it, because it was a regular thing that she would do.
The distraught father suggested that his daughter slipped out of the house and jumped the fence or gate.
The man said that the police are hunting a few suspects who would have made threats to the family and the girl a few days before.
