Security guard’s body found floating in Canje River

The lifeless body of a security guard attached to the Guyana Sugar Corporation’s (GuySuCo) Rose Hall Estate was on Friday morning discovered floating in the Canje River.

Dead: Angraj Kumar Indrpaul

Dead is Angraj Kumar Indrpaul, 59, of New Area, Canefield, East Canje, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).
The man was stationed at the guard hut a short distance from the river and reported for duty on Thursday evening.
He was last seen alive when he reported for duty on Thursday. However, on Friday morning at 06:00h when the person who had to take over the shift arrived at the work site, he said he saw Indrpaul’s footwear. Several hours later the body was discovered by a search party comprising estate workers.
The body was pulled out of the river. At the time he was not fully clad.
Indrpaul had been employed as a sluice security by the estate and was sent home when the estate closed in 2017 and was rehired last year when work on reopening the estate commenced.
Police are investigating the incident and are awaiting a post-mortem. (G4)
