The frenzy involved in Borough Day
celebrations is being blamed for the
death of 73-year-old Salisha Ghouralal
who was knocked down while cross-
ing the road in Guapo.
The elderly woman was struck by a
pickup van around 8.30 am on Friday
when she attempted to cross the road
after buying a newspaper at a nearby
shop along the busy Southern Main
Road, Vance River.
Salisha and her husband, Mervyn
Ghouralal, are the parents of PC Darwin
Ghouralal who was freed on a charge
of murdering eight-year-old Daniel
Guerra. A judge s warrant was subse-
quently issued for his rearrest, but his
whereabouts are unknown to the police.
Speaking at his home yesterday,
Mervyn Ghouralal, 78, who has been
married to Salisha since 1962, said he
was surprised his wife left the house
since as a safety precaution they do
not leave their homes during Borough
He said he was watching television
when he heard his wife open the gate.
"I want to know where she going. I did
not realise she was going by Ms Joyce
to buy papers. We have a safety built
"When Borough activities taking
place we do not want nothing in Point
Fortin. We do not want nothing by Ms
Joyce. Some spirit take she (wife) and
she walk up the road to get the papers."
He was told that a delivery truck was
offloading goods by the parlour and
the delivery man told his wife to cross
in front of his van, whereupon another
van knocked her down.
When Ghouralal ran to his wife s aid
he saw her bleeding from the head and
a medical practitioner was trying to
help her. She was taken to the Point
Fortin area hospital where she was pro-
nounced dead. "Nothing was wrong
with my wife.
She was of sound mind and body.
My wife lose her life through Borough
Day celebrations. She is the most beau-
tiful woman in the world."
The couple has five children and six
grandchildren. An autopsy was per-
formed yesterday and her funeral is
tentatively set for Wednesday. Inves-
tigators have taken a statement from
the 44-year-old Fyzabad driver. Cpl

News of a resurgence in the glob-
al steel industry is a bitter pill for
retrenched workers of ArcelorMittal
Vice president of the Steel Work-
ers Union of T&T, Ramkumar Nar-
inesingh, yesterday lamented that
Government walked away from a
golden opportunity to capitalise on
one of the most viable commodities
after gas. Narinesingh and several
hundred of his colleagues were
recently laid off after the steel giant
closed the doors of its Point Lisas,
"All I can say to Government is,
I told you so. We tried to tell them
the steel market would see great
projected increase and growth with-
in the next year. We tried to get
them to seek a three-way buy-in,
not 100 per cent of state ownership,
but with the union, an investor and
Government. They didn t even
entertain meeting with the
investors. They ignored us and now
here we are (the workers) and we
will not benefit from any growth
in the steel industry, after we, this
country helped to gather Acelor-
Mittal s wealth. It real sad," stated
He further elaborated that the
growth would be in different grades
of alloy steel and not carbon (con-
Narinesingh said the Point Lisas
plant would have been ideal as it
has the capacity for experimenta-
As for his colleagues, Narinesingh
said there has been an increased
use of counselling services, as many
have used up whatever savings they
would have set aside.
"We are fed up. We feel as if the
country is fed up of hearing our
story, but we are fighting for our
lives here. Government had the
power to make this work if they
had only thought ahead and moved
away from their mindset of oil and
gas. There is simply no replacement
for steel and the Chinese may get
wise and raise their prices. If we as
a country continue like this, we will
eventually become dependent on
foreign entities and foreign products
rather than our own," he stated.
On another note, Narinesingh
said, recently, his family suffered
another loss when their vehicle was
broken into at their home and the
last of their savings stolen.
He, like several of his colleagues,
has perused the Ministry of
Labour s employment website and
submitted several applications.
He has resorted to plying his
vehicle for hire.
In the meantime his Mother s
Day gift to his wife, a mother of
three, will be his ability to pay basic
bills and provide his family with
three square meals daily.
