Singh of La Grange, West Bank Demerara, was left in a critical state in a city hospital after he was severely beaten and chopped on Father’s Day night by his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend and two other male individuals.
It is alleged that the men had attacked him sometime between 20:00hrs. and 21:00hrs. while at his girlfriend’s residence. Based on information received, it was reported to the police that Singh had not too long arrived at the house when he was approached by the ex-boyfriend and his friends. There, the ex-boyfriend and his accomplices threatened to kill Singh before beating and chopping him about his body.
According to police reports, the young man suffered an open skull fracture, a fractured right wrist, partially severed forearm and a deep cut to the left side of his neck. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he was admitted in a stable but critical condition. An investigation into the matter is still being conducted.
