Man stabbed to death during row with relative
A Saturday afternoon altercation between two close relatives has left Narine Sankar, 49, dead. According to police reports, Sankar, who was allegedly a cocaine addict, was stabbed five times about the chest with a switch blade after he got into an argument with the relative at his Pointe-a-Pierre Road, Vistabella, home around 5.45 pm. Sankar reportedly armed himself with a cutlass during an argument between the two men and the relative used a switch blade to stab Sankar, who died on the spot.
The suspect was taken to the San Fernando Police Station and remained in custody up to last night. At Sankar’s home yesterday, his brother-in-law was reluctant to give details over what caused the fight. The victim’s sister Indra, in a telephone interview, said she didn’t know what happened because she was not there when the altercation started. She said another sister had called her with the news. “I don’t want to talk about it, I can’t talk about it. Thank you for understanding,” she said. San Fernando police are investigating. KP
