Upon hearing the commotion, Dr Sinclair came out and attempted to block his son, but he, too, the eyewitness said, was attacked.Guyana Times understands that no one went to the aid of the injured man, since the residents were all afraid of the perpetrator.This publication also understands that the violent behaviour exhibited by the suspect is a norm, and it was not the first time he has physically assaulted someone.Meanwhile, a post-mortem performed on the victim’s body has determined that his demise was a result of shock and haemorrhage due to the blows he had received to his head. Hazrat Shaffie was laid to rest on Monday afternoon, in accordance with Muslim rites.last_img read more
