SKN VIBES.-CHARLESTOWN, Nevis – A Guyanese national, who was residing at Upper Government Road on Nevis, was on Friday night (Oct. 4) killed on the spot by what many claimed to be a hit-and-run accident.

Dead is 51-year-old Hardat Balgobin, who hailed from De Hoop, Mahaica, East Coast Demerara, Guyana and had been living in Nevis for over 13 years.

Information received by this publication states that Balgobin, who recently celebrated his 51 birth anniversary, was on his way home sometime after 9:00 p.m. on Friday when he met his demise.

Information also stated that his head was extensively damaged.

According to the dead man’s wife, Pamela Balgobin, she was on the phone speaking with her daughter when someone told her that her husband had died following an accident less than 75 metres from their home.

Balgobin, also known as Chandrapaul, was employed at the Agriculture Department and is the first fatal accident victim on Nevis for the year and the fifth for the twin-island Federation.

This media house was reliably informed that a person of interest is in custody at the Charlestown Police Station assisting officers with their investigation into the matter.

SKNVibes was told by family members that an autopsy performed this morning (Oct. 7) on Balgobin’s body revealed that he died as a result of a “motor vehicle accident”.
