Balrup, an ex-policeman was said to be driving the getaway car for two men who entered the home and reportedly fatally shot Samaroo to her head.

They also reportedly shot her younger sister, Annetta Samaroo, 45, to her abdomen and she has been hospitalized.

A post-mortem examination confirmed that Samaroo died as a result of shock and haemorrhage due to gunshot injuries.

The two men reportedly barged in around 10.30 pm and shouted “police!” After firing the two shots, the men hastily left the house.

Police said that a quick response by ranks led to the getaway car being detained.
