Relatives of the female Amalga-
mated security guard who was
allegedly found hanging in the dor-
mitory of her workplace appeared
on CNC3 s Crime Watch programme
this week, seeking assistance from
host Ian Alleyne.
According to a police report, Meg-
gan Mohammed, 22, was found
hanging from a shoelace tied around
a rafter in the dormitory of the
branch of Amalgamated Security
Services Ltd, Prince of Wales Street,
San Fernando, at about 3 pm on June
7. Police were told that Mohammed
had an argument with her boyfriend,
who is also a security guard at the
However, Mohammed s mother,
Marlene, told Alleyne that she did
not believe that her daughter was
the suicidal type, since she was doing
well at her job and succeeding.
Mohammed s father, Edmund
Sewlal, also told Alleyne her death
was suspicious, as her body showed
visible marks of violence.
"My daughter was an ambitious
girl and I know she was not suicidal.
She now started to work for money
and was proud she could bling out
and take care of herself," Sewlal told
He added that he believed a close
male friend may know what really
happened and begged Alleyne to
On Thursday, Alleyne went to
Guide s Funeral Home in Couva
where he examined Mohammed s
body and pointed out bruises and
other marks on the elbow, upper
breast and neck. He noted, however,
that the incident seemed to be a per-
sonal matter and not connected to
the security firm.
Alleyne vowed to assist the family
in any way that he possibly could.
Another major story this week was
the case of missing woman Zalima
"Ashma" Naimool, 32, a nail tech-
nician, of Mc Coonie Street, Dinsley,
Naimool s eldest sisters, Nia and
Reza Naimool, visited the studio on
Wednesday and pleaded with Alleyne
to help them find their sister, who
was last seen on June 3.
Naimool said her sister, who was
recently divorced, was seen leaving
the home she and Naimool shared
in the company of her boyfriend,
30-year-old Rajindra "Dodi" Ram-
paul, of Biche.
Naimool claimed that since her
sister disappeared her boyfriend had
allegedly shown little interest.
The family said there had also been
conflicting stories of what occurred
on the day she went missing.
On Thursday, Alleyne met with
Rampaul at the Caroni Bird Sanctu-
ary to hear his side of the story.
Rampaul said he picked up
Naimool at her sister s house at Dins-
ley, Tacarigua, on June 3 at about 4
pm. He said he took her shopping
and then they went to a bar in Arima
Old Road where they had some
drinks. He said Naimool had three
He said while they were together,
Naimool told him that she had plans
to meet a friend after their lime. He
said he asked who was the friend
and was given a female s name.
He added that he did not know
the individual. Rampaul told Alleyne
that he did try to contact Naimool
several times on her phone but did
not reach her.
When asked by Alleyne if he was
worried about Naimool s disappear-
ance, he replied, "Of course. I am
hurting and in pain.
We have been together for more
than a year. We have been together
almost 18 months and I love her very
much and I know that she loves me."
Anyone who may have information
on Naimool s whereabouts is asked
to contact Alleyne at 294-4081.
Relatives seek answers in guard's suicide
Marsha Gill, owner of a silver Nissan Almera PCM 7195, also
appeared on the programme this week and pleaded with Alleyne for
help in locating her vehicle.
She said the vehicle, which was being used as a 'PH' car, was stolen
in a carjacking on May 20, 2015, near the WASA Pump Station at
Success Village, Laventille.
The driver of the vehicle, Samuel Alfred, 54, also appeared on the
show along with Gill, where he recalled what transpired. Alfred said he
was held up by one of the passengers in the vehicle who was assisted
by another man standing near the roadway.
In another case, Reena Sooknanan claimed that she bought two
Matrix vehicles, PBZ6951 and PBZ6952, from a woman in Freeport for
$32,000, only to have both vehicles subsequently repossessed by a
popular credit union.
