Community policeman freed of murder charge after lack of evidence
-no justice, says victim’s mother
With the freeing of the accused in the murder of construction worker Godfrey Jhaggroo, who was shot dead in Belle Vue, West Bank Demerara at the end of last year, Chunramanie Jhaggroo says that her son has suffered a further injustice.
Harry Rajpat, a member of a community policing group, was freed last Thursday at the Wales Magistrate’s Court due to insufficient evidence presented at the Preliminary Inquiry into the charge against him.
On December 19, 2013, Jhaggroo was shot to his head, minutes after having a heated argument with his neighbour.
He was headed to the Wales Police Station to file a report against the neighbour, who lashed him in his stomach with a piece of wood, when he was confronted and shot on the West Bank of Demerara Public Road.
