mous with Siparia and with our indigenous parang
“For most of us it is Daisy’s voice that signals

A 44-year-old woman who allegedly chopped her
sister was remanded to St Ann’s Mental Hospital on
Wednesday after her relatives suggested that she
might need treatment.
Sumintra Sooknanan, of Diamond Village, San Fer-
nando, appeared before San Fernando Second Court
Magistrate Siumungal Ramsaran.
It is alleged that on Monday she chopped Reshma
Bachan with a cutlass at Picton, Diamond Village.
Bachan, 28, is still warded at the San Fernando Gen-
eral Hospital nursing injuries to her arms.
Sooknanan was arrested and charged by Cpl Prince
with wounding Bachan with intent to cause grievous
bodily harm. She was not called upon to plead to the
charge. Sooknanan did not have an attorney.
Asked if she knew where she was, Sooknanan said
she was in court. She claimed Bachan stole some UWI
and Clico documents from her and threatened her.
Sooknanan was also concerned that she was running
late for registering at UWI.
Her family told the magistrate she was never on
any medication. They said she studied law years ago
at UWI. The magistrate made a note that it was his
opinion that Sooknanan did not understand her sit-
uation and her family members suggested that some
sort of treatment may be necessary.
He remanded Sooknanan to the St Ann’s hospital
for treatment, observation and a report.
The matter was transferred to the First Court for
May 21. (SW)
