Guyanese who came home for his mother's funeral was on Saturday
night robbed by two armed men of a quantity of jewellery along
with foreign and local currency.
The two men who wore
masks pounced upon Abdul Amin Ganie and two other persons who
were under his house at Goed
Banana Land, East Canje, Berbice.
Ganie also known as
`Baker' was relieved of all his jewellery which included gold
chains, bands and finger rings, Canadian $3000 and US$2000 and
$5000 in Guyana currency. Veena Ramrattan, who resides at the
house with her husband Terry Bacchus when Ganie is away, was
also relieved of her finger rings including her wedding ring.
According to Ganie, he
was at home under his house with his friend Brijmohan Sarwan and
Ramrattan. He was lying on a bed while Ramrattan was sitting in
one hammock and his friend in another when the men came up. The
men who came from the back of the house, placed guns to the head
of Ganie and Sarwan and made Ramrattan lie flat on the ground.
They then commanded them not to move or speak. Scared for his
life, Ganie said he told them to take what they wanted. The men
then proceeded to strip him of his jewellery and his pants which
contained the money. After the men left they all started
shouting for help and called for the police who arrived less
than fifteen minutes after.
