A Chateau Margot, East Coast Demerara (ECD), woman was robbed of $6M in cash after two gunmen trailed her from a City bank to her home around 11:00 hrs yesterday.
The woman, Indranie Budhu, of Lot 31 Chateau Margot, and her husband, Moolchand Budhu, operate an upholstery business at their home.
After withdrawing the money from the bank, the woman called a taxi to take her home.
As she was entering her yard, one of two armed bandits rushed in behind her and grabbed the bag.
While the cops are questioning the taxi driver, Budhu said that she is convinced that he played no part in the robbery since she has been using him for a number of years.
In an interview, Budhu explained that they were going to purchase a plot of land so she went to the bank to withdraw the cash.
“My husband was supposed to come pick me up but after I couldn’t get onto him, I called the taxi and when it reached, I tell the driver to come in the bank and collect me because I got money on me,” the woman recalled.
She explained that once she got into the car, she locked the doors and looked around for suspicious movement as she was heading home in the car but noticed nothing unusual.
“I saw nothing suspicious. When the driver dropped me off, I walked in the yard and then this man approached me and tried to grab the bag but my husband was in the work shop and I throw the bag at him, but the gunmen run to him, hit him in the head and collect the bag,” Budhu said.
She explained that as she was running out of her yard, she saw the gunman running behind her with the bag and grabbed onto it.
“He hit me on my hand and he was going to take my bangles but I asked him if he wanted fake gold too and he collect the bag and runaway,” the devastated woman related.
She said the men escaped in a grey Toyota Allion bearing registration number HB 5059.
The gunmen also escaped with two passports, both with US visas belonging to Budhu and her husband.
A report was made and an investigation has been launched.
