Murder of accountant: ‘Pandit’ to face murder charge today


Months after she was brutally killed at her Mahaica, East Coast Demerara house, Police have arrested a suspect in the murder of accountant Chooromanie Tulsie called “Anita” and he is scheduled to be charged today.

The News Room was reliably informed that the charge is being laid based on advice given by the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The suspect, Khemraj Persaud, who is also known as Ishwar Persaud and “Pandit” is scheduled to appear in the Mahaica Magistrate’s Court.

He will be charged with murder.

The body of 38-year-old Tulsie, an accountant, was discovered in the lower flat of the Lot 26 Unity, Mahaica, East Coast Demerara house she shared with her five-year-old son at around 08:00 hrs on November 22.

The discovery was made by Tulsie’s sister-in-law who would take care of her son while she was at work.

Police found a piece of cloth stuffed inside her mouth and a knife was stuck at the centre of her throat.

A post-mortem examination later revealed that Tulsie died as a result of stab wounds compounded by blunt trauma to the head.

The News Room understands that there was no sign of forced entry into the house and only a bunch of keys belonging to Tulsie was missing.

Her son was locked in the upper flat of the house.

During the investigation, Police arrested “Pandit” and two of his workers. They were later released without being charged.

Subsequently, after new information surfaced, “Pandit” was re-arrested. However, after being kept in custody for 72-hours he was again released.

But then he was recently arrested again and the Police are to lay the charge of murder today.
