Man’s death on Parika Road not being properly investigated – mother

Two weeks after the death of a Parika man, who was killed after being hit by a taxi driver on the Parika Public Road, his mother says that she is dissatisfied with the investigation.

Rajkumarie Shaw, the mother of Shafeek Shaw, told Stabroek News that police officers are not doing any proper investigation and that they are taking too long.

Shafeek Shaw was struck by a Toyota Spacio HC 3449, while walking on the Bushy Park Public Road at approximately 12am. He was taken to the Leonora Cottage hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
