Dead is Nikil Persaud of Lot 1022 Section A Block X, Diamond Housing Scheme who was a warehouse clerk at AINLIM.

His sister Angelina Persaud, 24, of the same address told Stabroek News that on the night in question she was at home when her aunt contacted her via telephone inquiring of her brother’s whereabouts.

They took photos of the wreckage and then were sent to the La Grange Police Station where they met the other occupant of the car, Kevin Kubeer who was a friend of Nikil. Angelina said that they asked the young man what had happened to which he responded, “Nikil was driving the car”. No other information was volunteered according to the family.
