The deceased’s brother, Ramesh Sukhdeo, told reporters that whilst at the “wedding house” he and his brother were standing outside on the street. He left his brother in front of the house where the celebrations were being held, and went to deliver a drink for his sister-in law. According to Ramesh, he was returning to the spot, where he left his brother only to hear screams. When he made his way through the crowd, he saw his brother involved in a fight with four men. He said the men overpowered his brother and were all striking at him. Karran then collapsed. Trying to keep his composure whilst speaking to this newspaper, Ramesh stated that, he rushed towards his brother believing that he was only unconscious. On a closer look, he said he saw blood gushing from the wounds. Ramesh stated that he tried to get his brother to respond but to no avail. He immediately left and awakened his parents. His father came with their car and immediately transported Karran to the Mibicuri Hospital where doctors pronounced him DOA.

The deceased’s wife Devi stated “We want whoever did this to face the full length of the law”.

As the woman recalled the traumatic night, she explained she was in the yard of the wedding house and heard a loud commotion on the street. She said she left the yard to see what was occurring only to discover her husband lying motionless on the parapet near the drains.

“I didn’t know was he, I don’t know why they kill he I didn’t want to believe was  my husband …He just left me to go outside and this what happening , what will happen to us now. How me and my son gon live without him …why dem do this to he, he never hurt nobody”, the grieving wife said.

According to the family, their loved one was not friends with the persons who attacked him but they are from the same village.
