Four days after death threat reported to cops Diamond father, 34, ambushed and killed
Four days after a threat was made against his life, Diamond Village father Aaron Ryan Bachan was stabbed to death near his home yesterday. As Bachan, 34, was being taken to the San Fernando General Hospital he pinched his brother saying “I am dying.” Police said Bachan left his home at Picton Settlement just after 8 am and while at Picton Junction he got into a row with two residents who stabbed him several times to the upper body. According to his grieving mother, Celia Bachan, Bachan took his wife Natalie to work at South Oropouche and when he returned he noticed a back tyre of his car flat. She said Bachan picked up a friend and while they were going to repair the tyre he was ambushed. “My son went to drop his wife to work this morning, he came back home and realised his tyre was going down...He left and picked up a boy down the road to go with him to fix the tyre,” she said. “Before he could reach to the back street, the tyre started making a ‘wobbling’ noise so he stopped and checked the tyre and while he was checking the tyre these two came, one held him and the next one stabbed him.”
Although distraught, Celia was furious at the response of the police. She said one of the suspects told her on Wednesday her son would be killed and despite reporting it, she said nothing was done. “They were planning everyday, up to Wednesday they cursed us and told us they would bag him and put him in the trunk,” she said. “They told me wait for a phone call. I am going to get a phone call one of these days. We were calling the police since Wednesday, the police never came. My daughter made sure to tell the police come before it was too late. “Anytime I call the police, they never coming or they are coming just now. They never have a vehicle, they never have anything. “Now when they kill my son, there are 100 jeeps coming with police, with all colour clothes.” She said the row started years ago when the suspects stabbed her son and the matter went before the court.
Since then, she said, her son had been stabbed twice, her husband assaulted and her grandchildren were verbally abused. Struggling to hold back tears, Bachan’s brother Vindy recalled the last moments spent with his brother. “When we reached by the Gulf View Link Road, he said that he is dying and then with his last ounce of energy he reached out in front and gave me a pinch.
“When I looked up in the mirror for him, he leaned back on the seat and that was it,” Vindy said. There were no arrests up to late yesterday.
