A FEUD among neighbours is being blamed for the death of a 37-year-old father of four.
Aaron Bachan died on his way to San Fernando General Hospital yesterday after being stabbed several times.
Bachan, who recently started working at Nutrimix, Point Lisas, lived at Picton Settlement, Diamond, San Fernando.
His mother, Celia Bachan, said on several occasions her family asked for assistance from police officers regarding disputes among the families, but received none.
She said her son and other family members were threatened on several occasions.
An emotional Bachan said her son left home around 7.30 a.m. to drop his wife, Natalie Bachan, to work in Oropouche. When he returned home, he then carried his vehicle to get a flat tyre changed. One of his friends went with him.
She said he stopped the car shortly after leaving the house because he heard a strange sound, and that was when he was attacked.
“He started hearing a wobbling sound and he came out to check it. That was when the persons held him down. One held him down and the other stabbed him. His friend put him in the back seat and drove him back home.”
Celia Bachan said: “I just want justice for my son. I know they can’t bring him back.”
Bachan’s brother, Vindy Bachan, drove him to the hospital in the vehicle which still had the flat tyre. The tyre was completely destroyed in the process.
Vindy Bachan said in his last moments alive, his brother told him they did not have enough time to change the tyre and that he was dying. “With his last breath, he told me, ‘I am dying.’ He then stretched out his hand to reach out in front and pinched me and that was it.”
His brother was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital, around 8.30 a.m.
Aaron Bachan was the fourth of five children.
Several years ago he was injured in a vehicular accident which prevented him from securing a proper job. His children, ages 13 to five, receive Government assistance.
Police are searching for two male suspects in their 30s.
Bachan’s death takes the murder toll for the year to date to 310.
