Businessman further remanded in beating of disabled man
Businessman Abdul Imran Khan was on Monday further remanded to prison after the court was informed that the victim, Romario Baljeet, known as ‘Short Boss’ was admitted back to the hospital after suffering from a seizure.
Khan, 32 of Austin Street, Campbellville is charged for the indictable offence which alleged that on October 28, 2018, he attempted to murder Baljeet.
Special Prosecutor Latchmi Rahamat told the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan that the victim will have to undergo a CT scan.
But Attorney-at-law Glenn Hanoman explained that the victim was seen around Georgetown and partying in the nightclub.
The Magistrate, however, remanded Khan to prison until December 10.
The Court heard that on the day in question, Baljeet was at a popular nightclub on Main Street with his friends.
After spending over an hour in the club, they decided to leave, and the defendant and his brother Safraz Kahn were standing at the gateway.
As a result, Baljeet walked between the two men, and Abdul dealt him several punches about his head and face causing him to fall to the ground.
Abdul then took a glass bottle and drinking glass and smashed it on Baljeet right side face resulting in injuries and bleeding. Abdul then continued to kick and punch Baljeet again.
Baljeet was picked up in an unconscious state and was taken to the Woodlands Hospital. Two surgeries were done to the victim’s face and more is yet to be done.
The police have obtained CCTV footage from the nightclub. Safraz Kahn, the General Manager of Pier One Sound, was charged for discharging his licenced firearm. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
His matter was adjourned until November 28.
