Son, accomplices to be charged with murder of businessman
The police said 32-year-old Satrohan ‘Bluey’ Madray of lot 1 Section ‘G’ D’ Edward Village and 30-year-old Antonio Balroop who is an ex-policeman of 313 Plantation Hope, West Coast Berbice are expected to appear at the Blairmont Magistrate’s Court where they will be formally charged.
The man’s son, 23-year-old Asif Hamid who is presently on remand for another murder, will also appear in court where he will be charged with “Accessory Before the Fact.”
The 23-year-old is on remand for the murder of an elderly Cattle/Rice Farmer of Number 56 Village Berbice whose remains were found buried in the backyard of Asif’s property in July 2015.
The charred remains of 56-year-old Saeed Hamid of 41 Queenstown Village, Corriverton, Berbice was found on June 20, 2018, buried behind a temple at D’ Edward Village, West Coast Berbice.
News Room understands the older Hamid was killed in a bid to prevent him from testifying against his son in the High Court trial.
On April 19, 2018, the businessman of Lot 41 Queenstown Corriverton, left for a business trip to Rosignol but was not heard from since and a missing person report was filed.
The two prime suspects admitted to bludgeoning the man to death and burning the man’s body to get rid of the evidence.
