Corriverton fisherman committed to stand trial for murder

At the conclusion of a preliminary inquiry at the Springlands Court yesterday, a 19-year-old fisherman was yesterday committed to stand trial in the High Court for allegedly murdering a 40-year-old man.

Reports are that on April 6, 2011, Mulshankar Sukharan of 24 ‘C’, No 79 Village, Corriverton murdered Krishendatt Kolandawell, also a fisherman of the same village.

Magistrate Krishndat Persaud found that there was sufficient evidence to commit Sukharan, who was represented by attorney-at-law, Rodwell Jagmohan.

He told the magistrate that he was innocent.

Police Prosecutor, Sergeant Michael Grant, in presenting the facts, said the men who were working together had a misunderstanding.

As a result, Kolandawell later went to the home of the accused, broke down his door and a scuffle ensued in the house.

They also ended up on the street where the fight continued.

At this point, he said the accused took a knife and dealt Kolandawell three stab wounds. He was picked up and taken to Skeldon hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
