Charges for PNC Executive who reportedly assaulted wife, brandished firearm
Police investigators spent the last week probing a report of domestic violence involving the Chairman of Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) Daniel Seeram and his wife, during which the couple allegedly assaulted each other.
The incident reportedly occurred last Monday at their Cummings Lodge apartment at about 03:00 hrs.
Sources told the News Room that Seeram, an executive member of the main opposition – People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R) – returned home during the wee hours of September 11 during which the couple got into a heated argument.
The argument escalated and the couple ended up in a scuffle during which they allegedly beat each other.
It is also alleged that Seeram brandished his licensed firearm during the incident.
Seeram eventually left the apartment and a report was made at the Turkeyen Police station by his wife. At the time, there were visible marks of violence about her body.
Contacted on Monday, Police Commander Simon Mc Bean confirmed that an investigation took place.
Mc Bean said the Police have since obtained a statement and a report was submitted for legal advice to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The News Room understands that the DPP has since advised that Seeram be charged.
Currently, both Seeram and his wife are on station bail.
In March last year, the former Guyana Defence Force (GDF) captain was involved in a similar incident.
He was charged and placed on bail for allegedly threatening his father-in-law with a gun during a heated argument at MovieTowne, Turkeyen.
