naresh-rooplall-et-alKarramchan, who said he is a fisherman by profession, told the court that he did not commit the murders.

Three farmers, Carlton Chaitram, 40, Jairam Chaitram, 18, and Tameshwar Jagmohan, 26, all of South Mibicuri, Black Bush Polder, Corentyne, Berbice, have already been charged with the murders.

The Chief Magistrate yesterday transferred the case to the Mibicuri Magistrate’s Court for October 4, while Magistrate Charlyn Artiga transferred the same case involving the three jointly charged accused to the court for report on October 18. Karramchan is expected to eventually be jointly charged with the three other accused.

Indrawattie Rooplall, a relative of the deceased, was present at the Whim Magistrate’s Court yesterday and the still grieving woman told Stabroek News that she will try her utmost to be present during all of the court hearings to ensure justice takes its course.

An autopsy revealed that Pawan Chandradeo sustained a laceration to his head, resulting in a fractured skull and he subsequently died of shock and haemorrhaging. His son, Jaikarran, and his brother-in-law, Rooplall, also died of shock and haemorrhaging.

A shotgun is believed to have been used to inflict the deadly wounds on the three.
