Man’s death on Parika Road not being properly investigated – mother

Two weeks after the death of a Parika man, who was killed after being hit by a taxi driver on the Parika Public Road, his mother says that she is dissatisfied with the investigation.

Rajkumarie Shaw, the mother of Shafeek Shaw, told Stabroek News that police officers are not doing any proper investigation and that they are taking too long.

Shafeek Shaw was struck by a Toyota Spacio HC 3449, while walking on the Bushy Park Public Road at approximately 12am. He was taken to the Leonora Cottage hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to the post mortem report, Shaw died of multiple injuries.

At the time of the accident, Rajkumarie said, there were four witnesses—three boys and one girl—but the police officers are telling her that there are no witnesses. The Police Public Relations Office told Stabroek News that investigations are still ongoing and no other information can be offered.
