BREAKING: Armed bandits kill Parika businessman

11

A popular fuel dealer from Parika, East Bank Essequibo was, earlier tonight, shot and killed by armed bandits as the spiraling crime wave continues unabated in Guyana, with citizens remaining like ‘sitting ducks’ with no security or protection against a rampaging criminal siege of the country.

Businessman Seeram Singh, 52 years old, of Parika Outfall, was attacked by armed bandits around 21:00 hrs tonight. He was reportedly shot at least three times, with one of the bullet wounds being to the head, suspected to be at point-blank range.

INews, speaking with relatives  and neighbours of the slain businessman at the Leonora Hospital, West Coast Demerara where he was rushed, all lamented the slow response by the Police to the brutal robbery attack.

Singh, whose wife had previously died, leaves to mourn four daughters and a son. He was known to be a very quiet and religious individual, and very helpful to others. He transports fuel to the hinterland region of Guyana.

His death is the latest in a long list of brutal slayings of innocent citizens from all walks of life and across the country, in recent times, at the hands of marauding gunmen.

INews will post a few photos in a few minutes.

  1. Another killing but Ramjattan wants us to look at the big picture… crime is down… and Granger wants less licensed firearm holders… save the bandits, kill the investor. #ridiculousness

  2. And so this rampage continues. Will the Ministry of Security respond to this rising crime spree under his watch. I guess not due to the jubilee celebrations. This jubilee celebrations takes priority over saving lives. Is this the change Guyanese voted for????? RIP my brother. Condolences to the bereaved family.

  3. Where is the useless incompetent dictator what the hell he has to say about the daily killings and robbing of innocent INDIAN businessmen and families? What’s the excuse–oh i am sorry you cant criticize this joker in chief for his incompetence an ignorance when it comes to managing the peoples business you will be labelled a racist.What a cry a baby–

  4. BREAKING: Armed bandits kill Parika businessman..
    Police slow to respond? Nothing new there.
    It is widely believed that once police are called there is a code on when to rush in and when to take it easy mainly because of the area.
    Crime taking place in lets say Buxton- police will rush in where as crime taking place in Better Hope police will relax and take it easy.
    Those people dont even want to asnwer 911 calls but hey they are all still there collecting fat salaries.
    Well the police will blast some more people yesterday because the people begging for protection from bandits and that got under the skin of police.police- telling public that crimes down big time so why people blaming police.
    There are whispers also that some of the good police are very much afraid of our insecurity minister Jattanahahaha out of fear he might have them fired and sue them for taking decisive and deadly actions against bandits.
    From sitting duck to dead duck.
    Our insecurity minister Jatahahaha will feed them good food and give them more phone calls in prison while our president will pardon them.
    Guyanese are in great capable hands.

  5. When I lived in guyana, it was a known fact that that the police themselves and those they were associated with were the ones who brutalized the Indian community because they were the one who made an honest hard earning. The government is just pitiful because they turn a blind eye because they are on the take themselves. That is why most people who seek a future have left the country. You took away our guns and then you started pillaging us. The wrath of god may be slow and purposeful but be aware it will be meeted out to you the guilty.

  6. Can people that the crime rate has triple since the PNC took office so my question is what the difference between the PPP/C and the PNC.

  7. Ramjaaaattttan PLEASE MOVE THE LID OFF UR EYES, you are extremely weak, not ur expertise. Go back to teaching or lawyering… Don’t know if u were good at it at least people might be safe…….ROGER KHAN.

  8. One more family to suffer at the hands of the new BOSSES (criminals), until all Guyanese take a very strong stance and demand the governments campaign empty promises to give Guyanese a better life nothing will change,I said it long now,criminals will take over Guyana because the people responsible for maintenance of law and order are busy with self interest,Guyanese STAND UP wake UP

  9. THIS IS TERRIBLE, PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN FEAR, THIS SURELY WILL KEEP PEOPLE FROM VISITING AND THOSE LIVING ABROAD THINKING TWICE ABOUT RETURNING ….THINGS PROBABLY ARE HARD BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO MAKE IT HARDER….SOMETIME YOU JUST HAVE TO SAY GOD KNOWS BEST AND HE DOES THINGS HIS WAY IN HIS OWN TIME….PEACE AND BLESSINGS…..
