When Samdaye Kumar
woke up yesterday morning
and saw her son sprawled on
the living-room couch in
front of the television, she
believed he was sleeping
She mistook the sheen of
drying blood on his forehead
for Vicks and went about her
task of preparing lunch for the
day---chicken with potato---
unaware that mere metres
away her son was in fact dead.
But after about an hour
Kumar realised that her son,
Sundar Rambissoon, had in
fact been shot in the head and
awoke other family members
and neighbours with her
Speaking to journalists out-
side her Hermitage Village,
New Settlement, Dumfries
Road, home, Kumar recalled
the events of the night before,
when police believe Rambis-
soon was killed.
"It was about 9 o clock, I
hear two loud noises. I say to
myself I wonder who bursting
fireworks this hour. I watched
outside but I didn t see nobody
so I went and sleep," she said.
"I know he was watching
TV from earlier so I didn t
worry about anything."
Even when she awoke yes-
terday morning and heard the
television still on in the living
room, she assumed her son
was watching cricket, she said.
he like cricket, he maybe
watching a game. I went and
peep him and he look like he
sleeping. So I ent bother him,
I went to cook."
Having prepared chicken
and potato, she was getting
ready to make roti when she
decided to check on Rambis-
"I peep again and see some-
thing shining on his head. I
say he put Vicks (ointment)
on his head and sleep away.
Is only when I come back
again I realise it was blood---
then I start to scream."
Rambissoon s body bore
gunshot wounds to the head.
While his body was being
removed by the undertaker,
Kumar broke down complete-
ly, begging officials to let her
see him one last time. She also
had to be restrained by rela-
tives as she tried to run out
into the roadway in front of
the undertaker s vehicle.
The parents of murdered Chinese
businessman Hi Hong Huang were
expected to arrive in the country last
The elderly couple were said to have
travelled to T&T via New York and
were assisted by the Chinese Embassy,
who ensured that they experienced no
problems on their journey.
Sources close to the family yesterday
confirmed that Hong Huang s parents
would like to return his body to the
Chung Shan Province in China. How-
ever, it is believed that Huang s wife
has expressed an interest in having her
husband buried here.
Hong Huang, 35, was fatally shot
as he struggled with bandits during a
robbery outside his business, Happiness
Supermarket at Southern Main Road,
Curepe, on Tuesday.
CCTV footage revealed he was
shot by one of the attackers as he
attempted to wrestle with another,
to prevent them escaping with a box
containing money. An autopsy con-
firmed that Hong Huang died as a
result of a bullet to the chest.
Less than 24 hours after the incident,
police arrested two Jamaican women
at the Piarco International Airport.
The suspects were said to have been
employed as security guards at the
Concerned that the two male sus-
pects involved may have already fled
the country, officers yesterday said
they were pursuing several leads.
The father of three children aged
nine, five and two, Hong Huang has
been described as a "hard-working
and generous person who gave freely."
Family friends revealed that he had
been considering selling the business
as a result of a similar incident which
occurred recently, when he was
attacked while on his way to deposit
money in the bank.
Sources said although Hong Huang
and his wife had been resident in T&T
for the past 12 years, one of their chil-
dren had been living with his parents
in China. His wife was said to be dis-
traught and inconsolable since his
death and is under medication as a
Bail in the sum of $5,000
has been granted to a mother
charged with wilfully neglect-
ing her four sons.
Sabita Jogie, 33, of Railway
Line, Cipero Road, Victoria Vil-
lage, San Fernando, appeared
before Magistrate Suimongal
Ramsaran in the San Fernando
Second Magistrates Court yes-
terday. She was not called upon
to plead as the four charges
were laid indictably.
The court prosecutor read
the charges that Jogie, being a
parent, wilfully neglected her
four sons, who were individ-
ually identified, in a manner
to cause suffering or injuries
to their health.
The children are aged six,
eight, nine and ten.
Jogie, who said she was a
farmer, was represented by
attorney Ainsley Lucky, who
asked for bail to be granted.
The magistrate granted Jogie
her own bail and also her
request to see the children,
who had been moved to a chil-
dren s home. He placed a con-
dition that she not be disrup-
tive during the visits. She is
due to return to court on May
8. It is alleged that on Wednes-
day morning, Jogie left her four
sons unsupervised while she
went to a bar. In her defence,
the woman said her children
were left with her father, who
lived nearby. ---Yvonne Webb

Rambissoon had survived being shot
four times in the leg during an attack
two years ago and lived obliquely
opposite the site where Southern
Division police discovered a large
quantity of firearms, ammunition and
illegal drugs last week.
But, according to senior Southern
Division officials, there is no evidence
to suggest the two incidents were

an AK-47, two pistols, a revolver and
ammunition. They also seized $1.7
million in cocaine. A man was arrested

One of Rambissoon's neighbours,
