Triumph man found dead with throat slit
A Triumph resident was yesterday found in his home with his
throat slit and his relatives believe that he might have committed
However, no one could come up with a reason as to why the man
might have decided to end his life.
Dead is Gharbharan Lall called `Motie’, a 31-year-old carpenter
of Lot 61 National Walk, Triumph, East Coast Demerara.
Lall was discovered around 9.30 am by his brother Jaggenauth.
Still in shock, Jaggenauth told Stabroek News that when he arrived
at the home he called out to his brother but got no response.
Jaggenauth said a window on the bottom flat of the house was closed
but the door was wide open.
“De place was dark. When I look I see he with a black thing by
his mouth and I thought he drink poison.” He said he panicked and
ran outside where he began hollering. He said when he first saw his
brother he did not notice that his throat was slit.
Stabroek News was told that none of Gharbharan’s neighbours
reported hearing or seeing anything strange at the house before the
discovery was made.
When his body was found the bloody knife was lying nearby and the
house was in order.
The man’s reputed wife Yasmin Alli said that around 7 am her
husband followed her out to the public road. “He left me standing
on the road to wait for a bus and he went back home.”
The distraught woman said her husband had no problem that she
knew of. She said she received the dreadful news from a friend who
telephoned her at her workplace.
According to Alli, she later went to the Beterverwagting Police
Station where a statement was taken from her.
The man’s relatives told this newspaper that Gharbharan had
made no attempts on his life before but they believe that yesterday
he drank poison then cut his own throat.
Several friends who went to the man’s home yesterday expressed
shock at the incident and were questioning what could have sparked
such a tragedy.
The dead man’s mother, Chandrawati Lall could not control her
emotions while this newspaper was there.
