[www.inewsguyana.com] – Nine days after he was shot several times in front of his Rose Hall, Corentyne home, 39 – year – old former policeman, Ravi Outar died in the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital on June 19, 2015.
On June 10, at approximately 20:00 hrs, Outar was standing on the roadway in front of his home when he was approached by a man who discharged several rounds from a firearm at him and escaped.
Police say that Outar was hit about his body. Relatives believe that the shooting was a clear attempt at an execution given that the man approached and started shooting without uttering a word.
Outar was a policeman during the crime wave in 2000 but has been operating a bar in his hometown for several years now. A Jamaican National, Ralvin Mc Lean was remanded to prison on June 29 after he appeared in the Albion Magistrate’s Court, charged with attempted murder Outar.
The court was told that Mc Lean transported the gunman to the scene in Rose Hall Town, where Outar was shot. Statements taken from Outar before he died by the police revealed that the accused is known to him.
