Mechanic back in court tomorrow over abuse charges

A 44-year-old mechanic of Anna Regina who physically abused his reputed wife of five years after she asked him to turn down the music and later threatened to kill her was last week placed on $35,000 bail.

Joordyal Rajpat appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Anna Regina Magistrate’s Court accused of unlawfully assaulting and used threatening language to the annoyance of Kamla Singh on April 7 at Anna Regina.

According to police facts, Singh and Rajpat have been living together for the past five years and on the day in question, Singh was at home in bed when Rajpat went home and turned the music system on so as to cause disturbance. Singh asked him turn the volume down and he pushed her down and dealt her several kicks and cuffs about her body. He also threatened to kill her.  The matter was reported to the police and Rajpat was later arrested and charged. Rajpat who was not represented pleaded not guilty to both of the charges. He was subsequently granted $15,000 bail on the threatening language charge and another $20,000 on the assault charge.  Rajpat was ordered to return to the Anna Regina Magistrates Court tomorrow, when the case will be called again.
