Neighbour in court for schoolboy’s murder

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Nine days after the charred remains of schoolboy Darian Nedd was found in the burnt out shell of his home, one of his neighbours appeared in the Siparia Magistrates Court charged with his murder.

Roger Ragoopath, 26, a fisherman, of Red Brick Trace, Siparia, appeared before Senior Magistrate Margaret Alert in the Siparia First Court yesterday.

Ragoopath was represented by attorney Frank Gittens. He was charged by PC Subash Harrypersad.

On March 20, Nedd’s dismembered body was found among the ruins of his home at Deo Bruce Trace, South Oropouche. His right hand and left foot had been hacked off with a cutlass.

Nedd was a Form One student of the Siparia East Secondary School.

In court yesterday, Ragoopath remained stoic as the charge was read to him. 

Gittens asked the court for disclosure on his client’s next appearance in court. 

Alert remanded Ragoopath into custody and adjourned the matter to April 26.
