He further stated that before the Police institute charges against the men, there needs to be sufficient evidence, hence, an early court appearance might not be possible.The acting Crime Chief added that investigators are yet to verify whether or not the motorcar that was found abandoned was the one actually used in the commissioning of the crime.Guyana Times understands that the men in custody are from the Sophia area including the driver, who claimed that he was hijacked but after further interrogation, he told investigators that the car was lent to a friend.Initially, the driver claimed that he was driving along Albert Street, Alberttown when two men on a motorcycle pulled up alongside him, pulled out a weapon and ordered him to stop the vehicle. Without hesitation, he told ranks that he complied.Based on information gathered from the driver, the others were taken into police custody. On Saturday night, as Kaieteur News held its first night of wake to pay respect to the late Assistant Editor, Dale Andrews who passed away on Friday, the live grenade was hurled at Lall’s vehicle.Persons who were at the wake recalled hearing a strange sound but assumed it was shattering glass. However, when a thorough check was made, the grenade was found lying next to the right front tyre of Lall’s black Lexus vehicle.The Police were summoned and the area was immediately cordoned off while bomb experts deactivate the device. They noted it was a miracle that the live grenade did not explode. On Monday, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum told Guyana Times that the grenade was detonated at the seawalls and that it was too early to determine the motive for the attack.This attack was condemned by several groups including the Government, the Opposition, the Guyana Public Service Union, the Private Sector Commission and several other news outfits. In addition, they have all called for a speeding investigation into the incident, referring to the attack as domestic terrorism.last_img read more
