A 39-year-old Patentia, West Bank Demerara (WBD) man, who acted as a peacemaker, was reportedly stabbed to death on Friday by his niece and her reputed husband.
The incident occurred around 22:20 hrs about four corners from where the deceased, Sunil Ransundar, lived. Ransundar, a father of four of Patentia Squatting Area was stabbed to his neck, chest, back and hand. He died while receiving treatment at the West Demerara Regional Hospital.
Ransundar’s attackers were identified as his niece, Shelly, and her spouse, Niran. They were arrested less than an hour after they committed the act.
A police source told Kaieteur News that when they arrested the couple, the female suspect was still clinging to the murder weapon – a knife. According to information, the suspects got into a fight with Ransundar’s sister, Saitree Bacchus (also Shelly’s aunt).
Bacchus, who managed to run for her life, related what had happened to her sibling. She said that Ransundar, a gold miner, left his home and went to his niece’s place to find out about the incident when he was attacked and killed.
At the scene yesterday, Ramdai Ransundar, the dead man’s sister told this newspaper that she was in her bed when she heard a loud noise. She added that when she peeped out, she saw Bacchus, crying.
“I went to her (Bacchus) and ask her what happened and she said that Shelly and her husband join and beat her. When my brother heard, he said that he going and find out what really happened,” a still traumatized Ransundar said. The woman added that less than ten minutes after her brother left to go investigate, she heard loud screams.
“When I look, I see people running and then a woman tell me to hurry and call a car, my brother get juk up. When I go, I see him bracing on a fence so me and another lady pick him up and rush him to the hospital.”
Kaieteur News was told that the father of four was stabbed through an alley and left to die.
But Bacchus said that she cannot recall what really transpired between the suspects and her brother.
She noted that earlier in the day, she made a joke with the male suspect but he got upset with her and vented his anger on his wife, Shelly.
“Shelly said that I made her husband beat her and that I gotta pay so she started beating me and her husband joined her and they both beat me,” the woman said, in tears.
She said that after the thrashing, she cannot recall what happened because she collapsed. This newspaper was told that the deceased only came out from the interior last Monday to spend the holiday with his family.
“He is very good. He mix and mingle with everyone. He and his wife separate about eight years now and he moved in with his parents,” a relative stressed.
The gold miner leaves to mourn his parents, siblings and four children.
