The Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the murder of Danrasie Ganesh, the elderly woman who was found dead on August 1, 2015 in her Montrose, East Coast Demerara home, will continue next week Friday before Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Courts.
The battered body of 77-year-old Ganesh also known as Carmen was found in her Montrose, East Coast Demerara home, on August 1, 2015, by relatives who went to check on her after she failed to answer neighbours’ calls.
The gruesome murder was captured on surveillance camera.
It was reported that Ganesh’s killer, believed to be Collin Alleyne, clubbed her on the head with a tyre wrench and dragged her into a corner, where she collapsed.
It was then the killer wrapped a hand towel around her neck, kicked and stomped the old woman until she lay motionless.
Alleyne was captured three weeks after the murder at Guyhoc Park, Georgetown.
He reportedly told detectives that a male relative of Ganesh paid him $700,000 to kill the old woman and steal documents pertaining to her property.
At an October 13, 2016 court hearing, video footage of a man sneaking into the elderly woman’s home and attacking her was shown to the court.
At that hearing, Detective Sergeant Julio Jonas, who is stationed at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Headquarters, Eve Leary, Georgetown was called to tender CCTV footage of the gruesome murder which was captured on CCTV cameras.
An unrepresented Alleyne who normally behaves disorderly sat calmly in the prisoner’s dock as the videos were being played in court during the morning session.
Earlier on in the PI, Detective Inspector, Cedric Gravesande gave evidence in relation to a confrontation he had with Alleyne at CID Headquarters, Eve Leary, Georgetown.
At the time of the murder, the police witness told the court that he was the Officer in Charge of crime at the Sparendaam Police Station.
Upon completion of the witness’s testimony, Alleyne declined to cross-examine him.
