Two men were yesterday charged with the murder of Munilall Mangru whose body was found under a bridge linking Mon Repos and Triumph.
Shaeed Baksh and Lloyd Rampersaud, who are both residents of Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara appeared in the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court yesterday. Magistrate Yohhannseh Cave remanded them to prison after the joint charge was read. The two were not required to plead.
One of the defendants was arrested and it was based on the statement that he gave that the other man was held.
Mangru, 41, of Lot 134 Mon Repos was on Tuesday discovered under a bridge shortly before 9 am by a group of men who were fishing in the vicinity.
He was fully clothed at the time of the discovery and his bicycle was discovered a short distance away.
Relatives had said that they last saw him on Sunday. Mangru, they said, worked as a labourer in the area and as far as they knew he was not a steady drinker and had no problems with anyone.
A post-mortem examination revealed that he died from haemorrhage of the brain due to blunt trauma.
