Man chopped to death in Couva

admin

An argument between relatives escalated to murder last night when one man was chopped to death outside his Couva home.

Relatives of Ganesh Samaroo said the 38-year-old was trying to calm a male relative around 7.15pm on Tuesday when the two began to argue.

The relative, who is 56, came up to Samaroo’s gate armed with a class and called out to him to fight. When Samaroo, a truck driver, went out into the roadway, the man chopped him on the hand.

Samaroo tried to run away but fell into a nearby drain. The man then chopped him several times as he lay bleeding in the drain. The man then ran away and hid at a neighbor’s home.

Samaroo died on the scene.
