THE Berbice High Court trial into the gruesome triple murder at Black Bush Polder, in July 2016, is expected to commence on January 10, 2022, before a 12-member jury.

Carlton Chetram called “Lieman”, his son, Jairam Chetram and two of his employees: Tameshwar Jagmohan called “Guana” and Rakesh Karamchand called “Go to Front” appeared before Justice Sandil Kissoon on Wednesday.

The men denied that, on July 21, 2016, at Mibicuri Creek Savannah, Black Bush Polder, they murdered Pawan Chandradeo, 37, called “Suresh” and “Jug Up”; his son Jaikarran Chandradeo, 16, called “Kevin” and his brother-in-law Naresh Rooplall, 35, called “Teeka Bai” and “Mice.”

The State will be represented by prosecutor Abigail Gibbs during the trial, while attorney-at-law Mursalene Bacchus, S.C., is on record for the four accused.

The Guyana Chronicle had previously reported that, on the day in question, the three victims had gone on a fishing trip in the Black Bush Polder backlands in an area called Cookrite Savannah, some three miles from Mibicuri, where they were allegedly gunned down by the quartet.

The men, each with a single gunshot wound, were found lying in a rice field belonging to Sudama Jagmohan who made the gruesome discovery.

The youngest victim was found next to his father. He had a gaping hole to the back of his head and a ‘salt bag’ with fish and fishing net strung around his neck.

Rooplall’s body had a hole in the neck and the fishing net was strung over his shoulder, while the older Charandradeo had his fishing net in his hand.

It is alleged that the men, while on their fishing trip, stumbled upon “Lieman” and his crew who were allegedly stealing diesel fuel in the said field. The men allegedly fired two shots in the air and the fishermen ran towards the dam and fell. It is believed that “Lieman” issued orders to “get rid of the evidence” and the men were shot at point blank range.
