The lifeless body of a fisherman was discovered along the Coldingen, East Coast Demerara (ECD) roadway on Saturday night with multiple stab wounds about his body.
Dead is 23-year-old Mukesh Mangra, also called “Paul” of Coldingen, ECD.
According to reports received, on the night in question, between 19:45h and 20:30h, a painter was heading home on his bicycle when he made the gruesome discovery.
Mangra’s lifeless body was lying on the Western side of the said road with two stab wounds to his abdomen – one to the left side and the other to the right side. The young man immediately contacted the nearest police station and ranks reportedly responded to the scene.
According to the police, the area was searched and a blue-handled knife was found almost 50 feet away from the body.
Mangra’s mother, Lillowattie Samaroo, also called “Barbara” reportedly told the police that her now dead son had left their home on January 11, 2020, to work at sea.
However, she explained that he was slated to return home on Saturday but did not show up. She believes that he might have been killed during a robbery since he would collect money from his boss when he is off the sea.
Meanwhile, according to the police, several persons were questioned but no one was arrested in connection with the murder.
Mangra’s body was transported to the Lyken Funeral Parlour awaiting a post-mortem as Police continue their investigation into the gruesome murder.
