A fisherman was beaten to death while his brother was admitted a patient at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH).
Dead is 20-year-old Alvin Seenarine also called “Chockoloo”, of Lot 820 G Zeelugt North, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), while his brother, Devendra Shameer Seenarine, was injured.
Reports are the two brothers were imbibing alcohol at a relative’s home in Zeelugt, EBE, but left on a bicycle at about 22:45h. Residents in the area reported that shortly afterwards, they heard a loud commotion and rushed to investigate. A resident said that they noticed three men armed with instruments beating the brother, who is now in the hospital.
The other brother was found in a motionless state a short distance away with multiple wounds about his body. Both men were picked up and taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital where Alvin was pronounced dead on arrival and his brother was admitted. However, due to the severity of his injuries, he was transferred to the WDRH where he was admitted.
The matter was reported and the police are on the hunt for the three suspects.
