A brawl between five prisoners in the Solitary Confinement wing of the New Amsterdam Prison has left a murder accused dead and his brother in a critical condition at Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
The dead inmate has been identified as 26-year-old Neshan Jagmohan. His brother is Ramnarine Jagmohan. They were both on remand for murder.
They sustained multiple stab wounds to body. The injuries were inflicted by Dillon Boucher, 25, of Haslington Village, East Coast Demerara; Ramchand Latchman, 23, of #65 Village Corentyne; and Rooplall Abrahim, 24, of Lot 4 Bath Settlement West Coast Berbice. They are all on remand for murder.
According to a prison official, the Jagmohan brothers had just returned from court shortly after 14:00 hours and were entering their cell when they were attacked by three other inmates.
The prison official said that one of the attackers called ‘Vijai’ is currently on remand for murder of Mohamed Munir and his wife Bibi Jamila Munir, who were found, burnt to death in their Hope, East Bank Essequibo home on April 17, 2016.
Another one of the attackers is on remand for the murder of Mahadeo Ramdehol, a Corentyne boat captain, who was killed during a pirate attack that occurred in May in the Corentyne River.
The attackers, using improvised weapons (jukers) stabbed the brothers about their bodies rendering Neshan unconscious and leaving Ramnarine fighting for his life.
When the prison authorities intervened the injured men were rushed to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital where Ramnarine was pronounced dead. Neshan was subsequently transferred to GPHC.
It is unclear what sparked the incident but up until late yesterday afternoon police were at the prison trying to ascertain what took place.
However, Kaieteur News understands that the killing might have been sparked by gang related issues. A prison source described the Jagmohan brothers as trouble makers. He said that they are in the habit of “chopping and jukking up other inmates.”
The Jagmohan brothers were in prison for the murder of businessman Devindra Deodat of Hampshire Village. The murder occurred when the brothers attempted to rob Deodat at his home in 2013. Deodat, a businessman, was shot and chopped to death by masked gunmen who stormed his home.
In December, 2015, the police issued a wanted bulletin for Neshan Jagmohan after he escaped from the New Amsterdam Prison on December 28, 2015. He was recaptured on January 7, 2016 at an abandoned lot at Rose Hall, Corentyne, Berbice
