Berbice mother of 3 stabbed to death by husband
Police have arrested a 32-year-old man who reportedly stabbed his wife to death just before midnight on Friday at their Rosignol, West Bank Berbice house.
Dead is 28-year-old Amrita Rahim known as ‘Sally’, a mother of three; the husband, Taijtam Rahim, was arrested after he attempted to escape.
The News Room understands that the couple had just arrived home from a relative’s birthday party when an argument ensued over allegations of infidelity.
Reports indicate that the young mother threatened to leave the house when Rahim went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed Amrita to the left side chest while she was lying on the bed.
The couple’s eldest child, age 11, after realising what occurred, raised an alarm and other relatives who live in the same yard, ran to Amrita’s aid.
She was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to the Fort Wellington Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The woman leaves to mourn her children ages 11,10 and 8.
