-accomplice in Bel Air heist
Rabindranauth Seemangal, who admitted his involvement in the July 12, 2011 Bel Air heist, yesterday testified in court that he and his former co-defendants were told by Chandraradha Rampersaud to scare businessman Malcolm Panday’s children or kill him if necessary to get the money.
Seemangal is serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to his part in the robbery, for which Rampersaud, Hardat Kumar, Jermaine Mitchell, Rayon Jones and Aubrey Simon are on trial. They are accused of robbing Panday’s partner, Annie Ramsood—Rampersaud’s daughter—of local and foreign currency amounting to over $7M.
