Police have made a breakthrough in the murder of burger vendor Navindra “Nari” Chatoor, owner of South’s popular burger joint Chatoor’s Burgers, after they arrested three people on Wednesday.

After hours of interrogation, two were released but one was still in custody.

During a crime eradication exercise between 9 am to noon, police went to Buenos Ayres where they arrested a man. They then went to South Oropouche where they picked up a vendor whom they believe had a business transaction with Chatoor. The officers then went to Croomen Settlement where the arrested a third person.

Chatoor, who was expecting the birth of his child next month, was gunned down while at his burger cart at Cross Crossing, San Fernando, shortly after 10 pm on May 14. Officers described his death as a hit.

Witnessed said a man dressed in black and wearing a hat, partially covering the face, walked up to Chatoor and shot him twice in the head at point blank rage in front of other customers.

Chatoor was the fifth member of his family to be killed and his murder came nine days before the three-year anniversary of the death of his brother, Rishi.
