In the meantime, the four murder accused remain on remand.

Singh, a spare parts auto dealer was kidnapped by two gunmen on April 5, 2014 at his Foulis, East Coast Demerara business place.

His car was found abandoned in Goedverwagting, East Coast Demerara by his wife. The kidnappers had initially demanded $50M from the family, but reduced it to $25M. The ransom was never paid.

Sometime after, Singh was found dead with a bullet wound to the head in an isolated part of the Le Repentir Cemetery. His killers had used a jersey to tie his mouth and nose. The killers then proceeded to stuff him in an alcove created by some fallen trees.

They had removed his pants, leaving him clad in his socks and his underwear. His hands were bound with what appeared to be his belt.
