[www.inewsguyana.com] – The investigation into the murder of businessman, Ganesh Ramlall a.k.a Boyo continues, but at a rather slow pace. Since he was gunned down on July 05 at his Lot ‘C’ La Jalousie, West Coast Demerara home, there has been no arrests.
As a matter of fact, there is a $5M reward on the table for any information that can lead to the murderers of Ramlall, but to date no one has called the telephone number provided to offer any such information.
The telephone contact provided is the personal number of Publisher of the Kaieteur News, Glenn Lall, who was a close friend of Ramlall. During a telephone interview with iNews on Monday, July 13, Lall made the startling revelation that no one has called to provide any tip that can assist the police to capture the perpetrators of the gruesome act.
Ramlall was the proprietor of the Regent Multiplex Mall located on Regent Street, Georgetown and was a popular and generous businessman in the private sector.
He was gunned down mere minutes after arriving home from a ‘wake house.’ His brother, Samsundar, known as Sugrim, found the businessman lying in a pool of blood on the floor, just outside his back door. Sugrim told iNews that his brother received a bullet wound to the head, while he was also shot in the abdomen and chest several times.
Police believe that robbery was the motive for the murder, as the perpetrators managed to remove the dead man’s gold band and chain.
Meanwhile, Glenn Lall expressed disappointment that no one can provide any information on his friend’s murder; he told those gathered at the funeral on Sunday, July 12 that Guyana has become a “numb and dumb” nation.
During the interview with iNews, Lall pointed out several incidents under the former PPP government, which he says has led to the breakdown of law, order and disrespect in the Guyanese community.
“And why people have become so numb and so dumb; I put out a full page ad in the Kaieteur News for one week for a $5M reward with my personal telephone number…. Not one telephone call I got with any tip on this matter. This is the reason why I’m saying that we have become a nation blind, deaf, numb and dumb,” the Kaieteur News owner told iNews.
He also reiterated same to those at the funeral. Lall made it no secret that he lays the blame for this at the feet of Guyana’s leaders.
“They set example and when these wrongs are being condoned and allowed, it only exposes us to the criminal minded among us; that is why Boyo can dead, they is why you can rob the Judge and do what you want and everybody frighten to talk, because we have become a country numb,” Lall told iNews.
Ramlall leaves to mourn his wife and two daughters, aged 16 and 18. Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of those involved in the murder can make contact with Lall on telephone number, 624 – 6456 or the nearest police station.
