At about 23:45h, the man recalled receiving a telephone call from a woman informing him that his brother was lying in a pool of blood in Gaza Street. He immediately went to the scene but by that time, his brother was already picked up and taken to the West Demerara Regional Hospital. “When I reach at the hospital, I see meh brother head bandaged up and he crying out for pains… So me and meh son asked he who do that to him and he tell we “Screech” and he son, “Puk”. I let my son record it and took the information to the Police,” the man stated.However, the next day he stated his brother was transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital. While there he underwent emergency surgery.The father of three, the doctors related, suffered severe internal injuries. He also suffered a punctured intestine and broken ribs. The man later was then admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) but died shortly after.The aggrieved brother is holding out that both Rameshwar and his father committed the act but the Police only instituted charges against the son. He said he will make sure charges are also brought against “Screech” since his now dead brother identified him as one of the suspects.“We want justice because we hear that the same “Screech” and he had an argument at the wedding house”. The Police have since released the man on station bail.The dead man was however cremated on Sunday last.last_img
