A man was shot and killed in
Couva yesterday morning, in
what appears to be an execution.
Senior Superintendent Johnny
Abraham said around 5 am a gun-
man walked down a narrow alley
next to the popular De Ja Vous
rum shop along the Couva Main
Road, hid behind a wall, and fired
several shots into a crowd that
was liming outside the rum shop.
Abraham said Wayne Hay-
wood, 30, who lived at Mc Bean
Village and Marabella, was shot
along with another unidentified
man. Abraham said Haywood
died on the spot, while the other
victim was warded in a critical
condition at the San Fernando
General Hospital up to late yes-
Abraham said police took pos-
session of a hard drive from the
owner of the rum shop. The
owner said the security camera
systems were down because they
were doing and upgrade.
Abraham said despite this mur-
der, crime in Central was down
by more than 100 percent for the
same period last year.
Abraham advised people to be
extra careful as the Carnival sea-
son draws closer. (See Page A20)
Man gunned down in Couva
"Who did this to you? I want to
know what happened to my little girl."
These were the heart-rending words
of Rehana Dubay, as she sobbed over
the coffin of her daughter Jaya Dubay-
Ramrattan at their Wilson Road, Penal,
Dubay-Ramrattan, 32, was savagely
beaten, strangled, and stuffed in a car
trunk. Her corpse was found last
Thursday, a week after she went miss-
Rehana, whose husband Kissoon
Dubay died of a heart attack just two
months ago, said she wanted justice.
Clutching her daughter s photograph,
her tears dripping on the sealed coffin,
Dubay sobbed, "I want closure. I want
justice. I want to know who is respon-
sible for this." A close male relative
who spent two days in police custody
before being released was present at
Dubay-Ramrattan s brother Amit
was inconsolable while husband Rishi
Ramrattan struggled to hold back tears
as he held their daughter Jaeda in his
arms. Hundreds of mourners braved
inclement weather to attend the funer-
al.Dubay-Ramrattan worked as a nurse
at the Community Hospital of Sev-
enth-Day Adventists in Cocorite before
her gruesome death. Many of her col-
leagues and friends also attended the
Pundit Kiran Maharaj, who grew up
with Dubay-Ramrattan, described her
as a caring, loving person.
"No words could bring solace to this
family or take away the feeling of grief
they feel," Maharaj said. He advised
that Dubay-Ramrattan s death should
serve as a lesson to others.
"We hope that after this, some of
us can change our lives and live in a
better way for our families and our-
selves," Maharaj said. He added that
death strikes every day.
"This death should awaken in all of
us the urge to be better people and to
live for others and those who are beside
us," the pundit added.
After Hindu rituals were completed,
Maharaj invited mourners to sing bha-
jans (religious songs) for Dubay-Ram-
rattan. Afterwards her casket was
wheeled outside. Amit, shoved aside
mourners to get to the hearse, while
Ramrattan held on to the vehicle sob-
bing. The body was then taken to the
Shore of Peace at La Romaine for cre-
Police said yesterday that they were
working on several leads and hoped to
make an arrest soon. Barrackpore police
as well as the Southern Homicide
Bureau are continuing investigations.
Senior forensic pathologist Dr
Valery Alexandrov has filed for
a protection order from the court,
after being physically assaulted
inside a mortuary room by one
of his colleagues last month.
The suspect, who has faced a
similar charge in the past, is
expected to be charged with
assault by beating.
Since the story broke in the
media last week, Alexandrov said
he has been concerned for his
"I am at home for the rest of
the week. I have spoken to my
lawyer, who will file for the
restraining order on my behalf.
My family is very worried about
me. They have advised me to
get this restraining order, so I
am working on that today,"
Alexandrov said last Thursday.
Alexandrov was beaten on
December 2 by a co-worker in
the mortuary room of the Foren-
sic Science Centre in St James.
Photographs and video footage
showed he was grabbed by his
tie, kicked and chucked out of
the room by the suspect.
Alexandrov made a report in
December and last Monday, and
a case file was finally submitted
by PC Ravi Mohan of the St
Clair Police Station. Mohan
received instructions to proceed
by summons in the matter and
a file was sent to the Director
of Public Prosecutions Roger
