The woman stated that after her husband was stabbed by two men, he was airlifted to the Bartica Public Hospital and later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital. She claimed that her husband’s boss was unimpressed with the medical attention given at the Bartica Hospital.

A post-mortem examination performed by Pathologist Dr Nehal Singh showed that Solomon, a father of one, died from a punctured lung.

Ross said a cousin had called her and told her that her husband had been stabbed and she immediately called the boss who confirmed it.

Ross told Stabroek News that they family is seeking answers as they never received any official report from the police on the progress of the investigations.
