A Princes Town mother is seeking answers
and wants justice after her 39-year-old son
died in what she describes as "questionable
Chrisendai Nandalal told Crimewatch host
Ian Alleyne that her son, Norrel Nandalal, also
known as "Starboy," of Busy Corner, New
Grant, went out with his girlfriend, Waheeda,
last Friday night.
The couple went to the Golden Rose Bar in
Matilda. When they arrived there, however,
Waheeda s former boyfriend Kapil was at the
bar. The woman reportedly ordered drinks for
Nandalal, Kapil and herself. His mother told
Alleyne that Nandalal became upset and wanted
to leave immediately.
But one of the people involved in the incident
told a different story. The witness said that
Nandalal started cursing and confronted the
man, telling him to leave his woman alone. It
is alleged that a physical confrontation took
place and Nandalal was beaten.
Nandalal left the bar and there are reports
that a man and a woman followed him. There
was another confrontation and the windscreen
of Nandalal s Black Nissan B12 was smashed.
There was another confrontation outside
the bar, during which time a man squeezed
his hand on the car door. Nandalal then left,
and reportedly called a friend and told him
what had happened. His friend told Alleyne
that he said he was on his way home, and
asked him to accompany him to the Princes
Town Police Station to file a report.
However, on his way home Nandalal s vehicle
ran into a lamppost near Bhagwantee Road
and Nachadee Road in New Grant, minutes
from his home. He sustained injuries to his
head and remained in a coma until he died on
Monday at the San Fernando General Hospi-
tal.But the story has taken on an interesting
twist. Hours after the incident, even while
Nandalal was in the hospital, critical from the
head injuries he sustained, his girlfriend whom
he had gone to the bar with allegedly flew out
of the country.
The man who was at the centre of the inci-
dent met with Alleyne on Thursday and admit-
ted that he had a former relationship with the
woman in question. But he insisted he did not
know she was coming to the bar that Friday
evening. He said he was willing to assist the
police in their investigation.
Alleyne also believes that the police must
ensure that the woman involved in the incident
is questioned. Having viewed Nandalal s body
on Thursday, Alleyne is now demanding a
thorough investigation, since he says it appears
Nandalal was badly beaten.
Shanderpaul Ramsey, a budding 16-year-
old athlete who attends the Belmont Inter-
mediate School, had his Blackberry stolen while
training recently at the Hasely Crawford Sta-
The youngster sought help from Alleyne and
days later he received a brand new Blackberry
Z10 phone on his birthday this week. The
phone was sponsored by Super Industrial Serv-
ices Limited (SIS) on Alleyne s intervention.
Moved by his youth and talent, SIS also
agreed to sponsor the athlete as he moves for-
ward. The company will also provide a coach,
uniforms, medical care and whatever else Ram-
sey needs. The teen will meet the SIS CEO
Darling Hosein was also on the show this
week. She thanked Alleyne for the safe return
of her brother Ramnarace Henry, AKA Moses,
of Bejucal Road, Cunupia.
Henry, 52, had gone missing one week ago.
He returned home one day after his sister
appeared on Crimewatch.
Shanice McKellar, of Lowlands, Tobago, also
got back $5,000 from San Juan businessman
Rhienaldo Dick after Alleyne intervened. The
money was outstanding since October 2013.
Dick sent the money in one dollar notes.
Alleyne said Dick was being foolish, but
nonetheless he had got the money back for
Dick still owes McKellar $4,000.
