By Leroy Smith
Senior Superintendent and Commander of ‘C’ Division, Calvin Brutus and a team of police this afternoon (Saturday, May 27, 2017) went into the community of Lusignan and spoke with residents there to get to the bottom of the circumstances surrounding the death of a 54-year-old man, Narine Singh also known as “Tamo”.
The News Room was informed that the man who resided at 20 Latchman Singh Housing Scheme, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was reportedly gambling at a shop in one of the adjourning communities on Friday (May 26, 2017), when an argument ensued between himself and several persons at the location. It is alleged that the persons then assaulted him.
Police sources indicated that the dead man sustained injuries to his upper left hand and bruises to the centre of his forehead.
After the assault, the man reportedly left and went to a shop in Lusignan and after making a purchase, he fell on the roadway. He was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted but died this morning (Saturday, May 27, 2017).
The police according to details emerging are not receiving very solid evidence at this point regarding exactly where the man was gambling before he died.
