Ravendra Pooran, a taxi driver of Diamond New Scheme, East Bank Demerara was today found murdered at Logwood, Enmore.
A relative told reporters at the scene that the man who is in his 40s left his home around 9 last night for the Diamond car park from where he operated his private hire car.
No one knows what happened thereafter. It is suspected that he was carjacked and was later beaten to death by his “passenger” or “passengers”.
It was residents of Red Road who spotted the body around 6 am. He was lying in the grass in front of a residence. His hands and feet were bound and there were visible injuries to the head.
Pooran’s car is yet to be found.
When Stabroek News arrived, police crime scene ranks were processing the area. No resident recalled hearing anything suspicious prior to the discovery. They said that although the area is dark at nights, it was not a place where criminal activities occur.
