Spare parts dealer feared kidnapped

- callers demand $50M

 

Popular spare parts dealer Rajendra Singh, called ‘Sunil’ was reportedly kidnapped at gunpoint at around 19.00 hrs last night outside his Lot 15, Foulis Public Road, East Coast Demerara residence. A family member has reportedly received a call from the alleged kidnappers who are demanding $50M for Singh’s release. According to reports reaching Kaieteur News, the 40-year-old businessman had already closed up for the evening when a silver-grey Toyota Vitz stopped outside his residence. The occupants reportedly called out for Singh, while pretending that they wanted to make a purchase. Kaieteur News understands that Singh, who is in the habit of helping out customers even after he has closed up for the day, went out to the men. The ‘customers’ immediately held him at gunpoint and forced him into their car. A source said that Singh’s wife subsequently received a call from someone claiming to be one of the kidnappers. The caller demanded $50M and said that the ransom had to be delivered immediately. The ‘kidnapper’ also allegedly left a contact number and warned her not to contact the police. Up to press time last night police were still attempting to locate the businessman and his abductors.

Give them G$50M and who knows if those crooks will do as they say or they will ask for more?

 

So no G$50 forthcoming, iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) was reliably informed that the kidnappers have since reduced their ransom demand to $25M.

 

Should they or should they not? Supposed they do not have the 25M?

Undertakers prepare to remove the body of murdered businessman, Rajendra Singh.

 

[www.inewsguyana.com] – The police are continuing to process the scene where the body of the kidnapped businessman Rajendra Singh was found Wednesday morning (April 09) with a gunshot wound to the head and his hands tied behind his back.

A source close to the investigations told iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) that while there are no suspects as yet; investigators continue to dig very deep to get to the bottom of the murder.

In relation to the setting up of a sting operation to net the kidnappers while the man was still alive, the source could not confirm or deny but reminded that the matter is a sensitive one which needs to be treated very carefully.

The police are also trying to ascertain if the man was shot at the location his body was discovered (Le Repentir Cemetery) or if he was shot elsewhere and dumped in the area.

Singh was snatched from his Foulis, East Coast Demerara Spare Parts business place on Saturday evening (April 05) by two gun men.

 

Dead: Rajendra Singh.

iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) was informed that Singh had made contact with his wife, through the kidnappers and told her to pay the $25M ransom.

The kidnappers, while contacting the wife, were also making contact with other family members to assure the payment of the ransom.

iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) has been reliably informed that the woman lost contact with the kidnapers on Tuesday (April 08) after they gave her a twenty four hour deadline to have the money paid.

It was also reported to this news site (www.inewsguyana.com) that the police who had taken possession of the woman’s mobile phone were the ones receiving the calls from the kidnappers which triggered the men and possibly alerted them that a sting operation might have been in the making.

Singh lived in Enmore, East Coast Demerara with his wife and 13 – year – old son.
