Hired for murder? Enmore man stabbed five times
A 50-year-old man from Enmore, East Coast Demerara (ECD) is in a critical condition after he was stabbed five times Monday night, in what relatives believe was a case of ‘hired hit.’
Dharmendra Lall, a bus driver, received injuries to his neck, back, chest and lungs.
The perpetrator, who gained entry through a window, reportedly told the man that he was contracted to kill him.
Lall is currently at the Georgetown Public Hospital while the police have launched an investigation into the matter.
Divisional Commander, Calvin Brutus told News Room that the man awoke from his sleep to use the washroom and noticed a window was opened. Upon checking, he was confronted by the suspect who stabbed him several times about his body.
According to the man’s daughter who resides overseas, she received a call from her aunt around midnight, informing her of the incident.
The suspect was reportedly wearing a handkerchief over his face but Lall managed to unmask him and realized he knew the culprit.
While the family said the suspect admitted that he was hired to kill Lall before escaping, Commander Brutus, told the News Room that no such report was made to the police.
However, he noted that the suspect did not steal any item from the house.
The man’s daughter said she is unsure of the relationship between her father and the suspect.
When News Room made contact with the family Tuesday afternoon, they were at the Cove and John Police Station submitting statements.
