The Guyana Police Force is currently investigating an alleged  murder committed on Surijdeo Deochand, called ‘Sarjie’, a 68-year-old pensioner of Number 3 Village, West Coast Berbice which ocurred Tuesday afternoon.

Enquiries disclosed that Deochand was living alone in a two-storey wooden house in an unfenced yard.  Kamala Persaud, a 63 year-old niece of the deceased, who also lives in Number 3 Village, said that around 17:00 hrs she was standing on the public road with her 26-year-old son, Yogindra Persaud, when they were told that someone had chopped ‘Sarjie’ and they must take him to the hospital. As a result, Kamala Persaud and other relatives went to the house where they saw Deochand lying on the ground in the lower flat of his house in a pool of blood.
They raised an alarm and summoned the police. A party of policemen immediately responded

The ranks escorted Deochand to the Fort Wellington Public Hospital where he was pronounced ‘dead on arrival’ by a doctor on duty.
One wound was seen on his left side face, one to the back of his head, one on his left side hand (wrist area), and one on the right hand (three fingers completely chopped off).
Investigations in progress.
