An East Ruimveldt man has been charged with the murder of businessman Ashok Raghoo, whom he allegedly robbed of $4 million during a fatal attack at a stop light on Vlissengen Road on Monday.
It is alleged that Travis Mc Dougall, 24, of Lot 422 East Ruimveldt, murdered Ashok Raghoo in the course or furtherance of a robbery of both him and his wife, Shayraz Raghoo, of property that valued $4 million. Mc Dougall was not required to plead to the indictable charge when it was read to him by city magistrate Fabayo Azore, who heard from the man’s lawyer that he was tasered by police while in custody. A sizeable crowd comprising relatives and friends of the accused gathered outside the court with placards to protest the man’s incarceration and treatment.
