Female taxi driver died from strangulation, blunt trauma
A post mortem examination conducted on the body of 47-year-old Indira Bipat revealed that she died from strangulation to the neck compounded by blunt trauma to head.
Police Headquarters revealed that the autopsy was performed Wednesday by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh.
Bipat, who was a taxi driver, was found dead on Sunday May 19 with her head down in a drain at Lust-en-Rust, West Bank Demerara (WBD).
The News Room understands that the woman’s car, a sliver Toyota Axio PXX 4114, is missing along with her phone.
Bipat lived at Lot 18 Samaroo Dam, Klien Pouderoyen WBD with her 18-year-old daughter Tharishma Samaroo and 24-year-old son, Deokaran Samaroo.
The News Room understands that Bipat worked as a security guard for the past 18 years but left six months ago to work as a taxi driver to provide for her children.
Her son told the News Room that his mother left home about 5:30pm on Saturday and said she would be back in an hour or so.
Her husband died from heart-related complications in 2013.
Police are yet to make an arrest.
