Mystery surrounds Claxton Bay murder
A case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. That is how relatives have described the murder of Claxton Bay straightener, Neeranjan Rajkumar, 47, who was shot and killed while walking along a track at Keith Johnson Street, Claxton Bay, on Saturday night. An autopsy was expected to be done yesterday. When the T&T Guardian visited Rajkumar’s Soledad Road, Claxton Bay home on Sunday, relatives were busy constructing a tent to hold the wake. His younger brother, Lokash Ramnath, 44, said, the family was “still in shock” after his brother’s murder.
He said his brother was visiting a friend around 6.30 pm on Saturday and while heading home he was shot several times. Ramnath said: “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don’t know if they mistook him. He went to visit his friend on the line.”
He said the last time he saw his brother was on the Corpus Christi holiday. Ramnath said the family is still searching for answers as to why his brother was killed, since he was well-liked and had no arguments with anyone that he knew of. “He was a cool person,” he added. Rajkumar’s elder sister, Kalowtie, 62, sobbed as she recalled cooking for her brother and sharing a meal with him. “We were close,” she said, as tears rolled down her cheeks. Rajkumar lived alone and was unmarried.
Investigations into Rajkumar’s murder are continuing.
