Police are investigating the murder of 86 year-old Bibi Ramjit, a Businesswoman of Lot 63 La Grange Old Road, West Bank Demerara, which occurred on Sunday 25th October, 2020 between 15:00hrs.
Enquiries disclosed that the deceased lived alone in a two story wooden and concrete structure where the upper flat is used as the living quarters, while the lower flat houses a grocery shop.
On Sunday 25th October 2020 about 15:00hrs, a 59 year old farmer of Schoonard, West Bank Demerara, went to purchase eddoes from the deceased, however she didn’t have change for his five thousand dollar note so he collected the eddoes and told the deceased he will drop her money later and went away.
About 17:00hrs on the said date the male returned to the shop where he observed the shop door and the back door to the upper flat wide open. He called out several times for the deceased but got no response.
As a result, he proceeded to the upper flat of the house where he looked into a bedroom and saw the deceased lying motionless on her back on her bed with her feet and hands tied.
He immediately raised an alarm and the Police was summoned to the scene. On arrival the entire scene was processed and the body was checked for any marks of violence but none was seen, several persons in the area were questioned but no useful information was received.
The body was then escorted to West Demerara Regional Hospital, where it was pronounced dead by a Doctor duty and further escorted to the Ezekiel Funeral Parlor awaiting a Post Mortem Examination.
