Engineer charged with murder of fiancée freed


Neil Madramootoo, the Ministry of Agriculture engineer who was charged with the murder of his fiancée Ashmin Mahadeo last year was on Wednesday freed after the matter was discharged at the Albion Magistrate’s Court.

The matter was called before Magistrate Peter Hugh who discharged the matter because the prosecution failed to prove a prima facie case of murder.

Madramootoo, 29, of Shoe Lane, New Amsterdam was charged with murder before the said Magistrate in November last year.
