Police in Springlands, Berbice have arrested a 33-year-old hire car driver for his involvement in a fatal hit-and-run accident that occurred at Number 76 Village, Upper Corentyne.
In police custody, along with his car, is Yadesh Rooplall. The victim of the accident has been identified as Parmanand Harripaul, a 27-year-old of Lot 62 Section A Number 69 Village. Police sources have indicated that Rooplall was arrested yesterday morning in Linepath, Skeldon while the vehicle he was driving was found at a bodyworks and spray paint establishment in Crabwood Creek around 21:00 hrs Saturday night. The incident reportedly occurred Saturday afternoon.
Reports are that the police acted on information given by an anonymous caller that a body of a male was on the parapet of the Number 76 public road. Upon the arrival of police ranks, blood was seen on the victim’s neck and torso along with a gash on his neck. Small fragments of glass were also noticed about three feet away from the body.
Subsequently, contact was made with Leelawattie Hemraj, who identified the body to be that of her son. The body was transported to the Skeldon Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The body is at the Skeldon Public Hospital mortuary awaiting a post mortem examination.
Meanwhile, a relative of the deceased, Chetram Harry, told Kaieteur News that his nephew left home Saturday afternoon but did not say where he was heading. It was not long after that they were informed by the police that Harripaul’s lifeless body was found on the road. He has no children and was never married.
Investigations are ongoing.
