Guard robbed, killed at home

Source: Trinidad Express


BANDITS took a DVD player, cellular telephone and a wallet from an off-duty security officer, before almost splitting his head open with a hatchet during what police believe was a robbery at his D'abadie home early yesterday morning.

What d hell!

During the ordeal, Jameel Ali's wife of the last four years was forced to watch but ordered not to scream, under threat that she would face the same fate.

Ali, 45, who lived in a small but ramshackle apartment below his mother's house at Recreation Road, was employed at Pentagon Security. The couple had no children.

The horror began shortly before 3 a.m. Ali and his wife were asleep when the three men, two armed with cricket bats and one with a hatchet, forced open a door leading to Ali's one-room apartment.

Police sources said Ali was beaten about the body by the men with the bats. As he crouched in a corner, the man with the hatchet attacked him, striking a blow almost to the back of his head.

Ali's mother, Rosey Birjoo, yesterday recalled that a few days before the attack, her son spoke of strange men walking on Recreation Road, which has a dead end. Beyond the dead end road is a large tract of unoccupied land.

Birjoo said she heard the commotion sometime before 3 a.m. and called the police, but by the time she made the call the killers were already making their escape. Ali's wife however was left physically unharmed. Crying while she spoke to reporters yesterday, she complained that the police "took long" to arrive at the scene. They searched the area for the killers when they got there but to no avail.

Emergency Medical Services personnel arrived afterwards. Two of the attendants walked downstairs to the bloodstained apartment, and walked back up grim faced, saying Ali was already dead and there was nothing they could do.

Officers from Crime Scene Unit and Homicide Bureau, led by ASP Stanley Ramdeen, visited the scene afterwards.

"I eh know what this country coming too nah. He was a good son," Birjoo said, adding that the only thing she wanted was to see was the faces of her son's killers.

Homicide Bureau officers are continuing investigations. The murder toll stood at 266 yesterday evening.

Yes Trinidad, we finally reach! This is what Vision 20/20 is all about folks. Ministers living large and citizens getting hacked to death. This is what it is all about, this is what you vote for when you vote for the PNM...violent murders, rape, kidnapping, human trafficking, larceny and the list goes on. Notice PM Manning has nothing to say about crime, his major concern is hosting summits, having meetings in his diplomatic centre and spending millions of taxpayer's dollars to do this. This is how the PNM cares for you.
