‘Pandit’ charged with murder of Mahaica accountant


Khemraj Persaud, also known as “Pandit”, the man who is accused of killing Mahaica accountant Chooromanie Tulsie called “Anita” back in November last year, was on Thursday charged with murder and remanded to prison.

Fifty-seven-year-old Persaud, a businessman of Unity, Mahaica appeared before Magistrate Alan Wilson at the Mahaica Magistrate’s Court.

It is alleged that between November 21 and 22, 2023 he murdered Tulsie at Unity, Mahaica.

Persaud was not required to plea to the charge and was remanded to prison.

The matter was adjourned to June 20 for report and statement.

The body of 38-year-old Tulsie 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 ordeal.

    If this took so long to investigate, then the Police must have the correct “pandit” who allegedly committed the murder…a known individual.
