Three months later: No leads in murder of female taxi driver


Police Commander ‘D’ Division Edmond Cooper on Monday told the News Room that there is not a single lead into the murder of West Bank Demerara (WBD) female taxi driver Indira Bipat.

It was three months ago that the body of Bipat, 47, was found with her head down in a drain at Lust-ent-Rust, West Bank Demerara. Commander Cooper said they are still looking for possible clues and the investigation remains open.

Bipat lived at Lot 18 Samaroo Dam, Klien Pouderoyen, also on the West Bank, with her 18-year-old daughter Tharishma Samaroo and 24-year-old son Deokaran Samaroo.

A post mortem examination conducted on May 22 revealed that she died from strangulation to the neck compounded by blunt trauma to head.

The woman’s car, a silver Toyota Axio PXX 4114, remains missing along with her phone.

Six months prior to her death, Bipat started working as a taxi driver six to provide for her children.
