Khan, a gold miner of Triumph, East Coast Demerara, pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court 1.

Khan and Davendranauth are known to each other, according to police.

Police Prosecutor Bharat Mangru objected to bail, citing the seriousness of the offence.

However, the court heard that Khan was released on station bail one day after he was arrested.

Khan was granted $100,000 bail and the matter was adjourned to March 24.

Khan was involved in a scuffle almost a month ago that led to the loss of his left eye.

He was trying to be a peacemaker at a BBQ and Lime, held at his friend’s place on Valentine’s night, when he was attacked by two men, who also chopped him about his body.
