Man confesses he stabbed ex-wife out of jealousy, says relative disclosed her whereabouts
Murder suspect Suraj Ganpat has reached out to the relatives of his ex-wife, Cindy Ramchandar and explained in a confession that he stabbed the woman out of jealously after he was told that she was romantically involved with another man.
In the telephone conversation, he claimed that a relative provided this information and also told him how and when he can get in contact with the now dead woman.
That same relative, identified during the call as ‘mama’, is the mother of the child Ramchandar was transporting home on her electric scooter at 8:30 hrs Monday when she was attacked and stabbed.
Ganpat during the phone call confessed his love for his ex-wife and seemed unaware that the woman had died, asking repeatedly if she was hospitalised.
Family members now blame ‘Mama’ for the woman’s demise, reasoning that had she not provided the information she is accused of relating, Ramchandar would have been alive.
A transcript of the conversation is below:

When contacted on Tuesday, Ramchandar’s aunt, Anita Thribowan said “She [mama] is the reason Cindy lost her life cause she call the ex-husband and stir up problems and make the ex husband come with passion to kill Cindy. She should also be held accountable cause it all happened because of her.”
Monday’s stabbing came two months Ramchandar, 25, left her matrimonial home and the turbulent relationship she shared with her husband.
Police sources told the News Room that the victim sustained more than three stab wounds about her body and was rushed to the Skeldon Public Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
A post mortem examination will be done later this week.
