Overseas-based Guyanese found murdered in yard
-four in custody
Police were summoned to the scene of an alleged murder just before midnight on Tuesday at Reliance, East Canje where the body of an overseas-based Guyanese was discovered lifeless at the step of his premises.
Dead is Hemraj Pardesi called “Prem.” Police sources have since confirmed that Pardesi returned to Guyana about a month ago and was executing some renovation works on his premises at Lot 9 Reliance.
The News Room was informed that Pardesi visited one of the commercial banks Tuesday to make a withdrawal of an undisclosed amount of cash and he did so in the company of a friend.
After returning back to the Reliance property, the friend is said to have left the premises around 22:30h Tuesday night and at approximately 23:00h, the suspects entered the yard and confronted Pardesi.
Police said there was no sign of forced entry and when they arrived at the scene, Pardesi’s lifeless body with visible marks of violence was found near the bottom of the steps (that leads to the upper flat). Four persons have since been arrested as investigations are in progress.
