Young Essequibo rice farmer found dead; family suspects foul play
A 29-year-old rice farmer of Mainstay Public Road, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) was found dead on Tuesday morning, a few hours after he was reported missing by his relatives.
Dead is Narendra Seecharran, who was found hanging from a jamoon tree at Reliance backdam; his relatives suspect foul play and are claiming that he was murdered by persons he had a recent incident with as it relates to his expansive rice field at Lima /Sparta, Essequibo Coast backdam.
The News Room understands that Seecharran left his house to visit his rice fields at around 17:30hrs on Monday and never returned home.
Calls to his cellphone went unanswered and so his sister decided to track his phone’s location via his Google account. The location pinned him at Reliance backdam, a few villages away from his rice field.
They found his body during a search this morning. The News Room was reliably informed that Seecharran’s motorcycle was found nearby and his clothing appeared to have been ripped.
The family believes that Seecharran could not have died by suicide and pointed to a recent rift between him and other farmers. It is alleged that Seecharran did “vapor spraying” of his rice fields but it extended to about 30 acres belonging to other farmers, damaging their crops in the process.
