Home Top Stories Wanted bulletin issued for suspects in Berbice brothers’ murder
The Guyana Police Force on Monday issued wanted bulletins for 28-year-old Yougendra Jeenarine of Lot 439 Bush Lot, Corentyne, Berbice and his 32-year-old accomplice, Kelvin Shivgobin of Belvedere, Corentyne, Berbice, in connection with the murder of two brothers, Harricharran and Premcharran Samaroo, both of Bush Lot Farm, Corentyne, on December 31, 2018.
It was reported that the two men, 46-year-old Premcharran, and Harricharran, 45, were killed by bandits on Old Year’s night during the course of a robbery.
About 20:30h on Old Year’s night, the duo were at their mother’s home celebrating with a cousin who was visiting from the United States when bandits pounced on them.
Reports are a loud explosion was heard, which some family members dismissed as a squib, but the brothers thought it was too loud and too close and decided to investigate. As Premcharran walked from under the house, he was shot to the head and fell, dying seconds later.
Harricharran, who also went to investigate, was beaten by the bandits and later succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention at the Port Mourant Hospital.
Persons with any relevant information that will lead to the arrest of Yougendra Jeenarine and Kelvin Shivgobin are kindly asked to contact the Police on 664-0181, 623-3012, 648-2323, 333-3876, 333-2485, 333-5564, 333-2151-3, 911 or at the nearest police station.
