The battered body of a 48-year-old woman was discovered Sunday afternoon by her son who had just returned home from work.
The dead woman has been identified as Anita Mohan called ‘Sandra’, of Lot 315 South-East Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown.
The woman was reportedly found in a pool of blood in her kitchen. The discovery was made just before 17:00hrs.
The dead woman’s son, Imtiaz Khan, 27, told reporters shortly after the discovery, that from the injuries his mother sustained about her body, it appears as though she was stabbed to death.
The mason and part-time ‘car washer’ recalled that he left home sometime around 07:45hrs Sunday morning for work and that was the last time he saw and spoke with his mother. At the time he noted that his cousin, who lives in the house, was also at home.
Khan noted that when he came home he did not notice his mother or cousin but thought nothing of it. He added that it was when he went into the kitchen that he made the gruesome discovery and alerted relatives, who live nearby.
He noted that after the relatives came and saw his mother’s lifeless body, they immediately summoned the police.
Crime Scene Investigators came and dusted the kitchen and other parts of the house, before removing the body.
According to the son, the house was ransacked but at the time he could not say whether anything was taken from the premise.
The Police have since arrested the nephew who lives with them. However, Khan does not believe his cousin committed the gruesome act. He explained that the suspect told him that he left home around 15:00hrs to gather their cattle.
Meanwhile, residents close by do not recall seeing or hearing anything strange at the house but noted that loud music was blaring from the house. They suspected that Mohan was killed sometime when the music was on hence neighbours did not hear any strange noise or screams.
The woman’s body had been taken to the Lyken Funderal Parlour, awaiting a post-mortem.
