Bandits burn rice farmers to death in botched robbery

ricefarmers_fireTwo prominent rice farmers in Region Three were Sunday night burnt to death in their house during an attack by bandits.

Dead are Munair and Jamila (only names known) , said to be elderly persons.

One of the theories is that after the elderly couple realised that bandits had invaded their home at Good Hope, East Bank Essequibo, they locked themselves in their bedroom.

The rice farmers lived not far from popular businessman, ‘Dumb Boy.’

It is believed that the bandits set fire to the wooden and concrete house after they failed to gain entry to a bedroom where the husband and wife had locked themselves in.

Investigators believed that the robbers might have clipped a grill and gained entry to the house.

Police and fire fighters were summoned to the scene after the fire began.

Eyewitnesses said the Munair was heard yelling through his grilled window as neighbours drove out the tractors from his yard while the fire raged.

    ‘It is believed that the bandits set fire to the wooden and concrete house after they failed to gain entry to a bedroom where the husband and wife had locked themselves in.’
    And we have a number of apparent, apparent, apparent do gooders want us to abolish the death penalty.
    I look forward to their comments

      When I said hang them high , many said why. So let the criminals hang the citizens and see if Human Rights International can save the lives. CRIME WILL NOT FINISH , BUT REDUCE. ITS KNOWN AS A DETERRENT METHOD.

      Are you “stupid?” What does Mr. Ramjathan and the President has to do with this?

      Words cannot describe the persons who caused the death of these hardworking people.
      It is really painful when these things happen. GOD help US, please.

    It is my firm belief that once it is confirmed that you were involved in murder you should die. The institutions that argue against the death penalty are bent on an evil course.

    It will be of interest to find the criminals. Could it be another planned robbery or just villagers using drugs. This is of interest.
