The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has advised that Rafeek Khan be charged for the murder of 61-year old Sattie Monica Singh -Bekharry.
Khan will be arraigned before the presiding magistrate at Vigilance Magistrate’s Court tomorrow for the charge to be read to him.
A few days ago, members of the Guyana Police Force ( GPF) had to deploy tear gas to the ceiling of an Atlantic Gardens home, before they were able to arrest Khan.
Khan is believed to have slit the elderly woman’s throat allegedly over some unpaid monies.
According to information received, the victim lived alone at her Lot 152 Atlantic Gardens, East Coast Demerara home. On the day in question, Khan, who is a frequent visitor to the home arrived and shortly after a construction worker who was working opposite the house, heard the woman screaming for murder.
He ran over to the woman’s house but was unable to enter the home to provide assistance as the premises are heavily grilled.
The police were called and were forced to used tear gas because Khan refused to exit the house.
After some time, ranks broke into the house and apprehended him.
