…”something is not adding up” – family

Dead: Kimal Khan

A motorcyclist was gunned down under mysterious circumstances, by three men who pulled up alongside him at the traffic light at Ogle, East Coast Demerara (ECD), and opened fire.
Dead is Kimal Khan, a 42-year-old resident of Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, who was killed at around 00:10h on the Ogle Public Road, ECD.
Investigations revealed that around 23:00h on Saturday night, Khan and his common-law 21-year-old wife left their Mon Repos home on a black Honda motorcycle, CL 5173.
Police said they proceeded to Wee Bar and Lounge at Mon Repos Public Road, where they each consumed an alcoholic beverage and left for another bar in Mon Repos and later returned to Wee Bar and Lounge, where they spent a few minutes and left again, heading to a location in Georgetown.
As they made their way to Georgetown, Khan stopped his motorcycle at the traffic light at Ogle, waiting for the light to change. At that time, a tinted silver-coloured Allion vehicle pulled up alongside them and the occupants discharged several rounds in their direction.

Moments after Khan was shot and killed by the unknown gunmen

Khan immediately fell off the motorcycle onto the roadway as the car sped away, heading south along the Ogle Access Road.
The Police were summoned and arrived about five minutes later, along with EMT personnel. They found Khan lying on the road motionlessly in a pool of blood.
The body was examined, and a gunshot wound was seen on the left side of the chest and two to the right side of the head. The man was pronounced dead.
The crime scene was visited at about 00:15h by Commander, Regional Police Division 4C, Assistant Commissioner K Pareshram; Deputy Superintendent J Dufu; Detective Assistant Superintendent Adams, Sergeant Benjamin, Sergeant Goodridge, Lance Corporal Cockfield, and other Police ranks.
The scene was processed and photographed, six 9mm spent shells were recovered, and an investigation was launched. The body was escorted to Memorial Gardens Funeral Home, awaiting a post-mortem examination. The area was also canvassed for CCTV cameras.

Following this incident, Guyana Times spoke to a relative of Khan, who expressed shock at his sudden death.
“This is shocking and I don’t know if he had issues with anybody… this thing here is not adding up, something is not adding up. She [the girlfriend] see the car then when they stop at Ogle, she said they [the suspects] stop the car, come out, and then start shooting up,” the relative said.
The relative added that they do not know who might want Khan dead because he never spoke of having any issues with anyone. They said he was a “nice” person and would like to know what would have caused someone to shoot him. The man’s family is calling for justice. (G9)
