A Corentyne resident was questionably the country’s first reported murder victim. He was killed just ten minutes into the New Year.
The celebrations were just beginning to soak in when it was reported that one man was stabbed to death following an altercation with one of his drinking partners. Dead is Asif Hafeez, 24, a labourer of Lot 72 Grant 1780, Crabwood Creek, Corentyne, Berbice.
The situation started from a misunderstanding between the couple who lived in the upper flat of a two-storey apartment.
The alleged killer, a relative of the dead man’s wife, lived in the lower flat.
According to information, Hafeez and his wife had just returned from an Old Year’s Night party next door when an argument erupted between them.
It is alleged that the woman’s relative downstairs got involved and Hafeez reportedly promptly told him to “mind his own business”.
This infuriated the situation and the two men became involved in an argument. Hafeez reportedly went downstairs and an altercation began during which he was stabbed in the neck by the other man who was reportedly under the influence of alcohol.
The injured man was picked up and taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. After committing the act the perpetrator walked out of the yard and has not been seen since. Investigations are ongoing.
