Corentyne robber dies after shot by accomplice

The Police say they are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at about 1910h last night at No. 11 Village, Corentyne, during which Rohan Doodnauth, 55 years, and his wife Renawattie Doodnauth were attacked and robbed by three men, two of whom were armed with firearms.

Investigations, police say, have revealed that the three perpetrators entered the premises and held up Rohan Doodnauth and his wife along with an employee.

They demanded cash and valuables and some jewellery was handed over. The police said that not satisfied with the jewellery, the men made more demands and threatened the victims during which one of them discharged a round that struck one of his accomplices to the body.

The police said that neighbouring residents responded, forcing the men to flee and leaving the wounded man behind.

He has been identified as Avinash Rambazad called “Pandit”, 20 years, of Adelphi Village, East Canje, Berbice, and he succumbed today while receiving medical treatment at the New Amsterdam Hospital.
