COUPLE Omardath Deokienanan and Sharon Bahdoor were laid to rest during separate funeral services yesterday.
The two were killed on New Year’s Day after they returned from liming with Bahadoor’s relatives in Williamsville.
At Deokienanan’s mother home at Borde Narve Village, Reverend Adhar George said while life seems to have little value to some people, “God is not pleased when innocent blood is shed.”
The senior pastor at the Bethel Open Bible Church said, “I knew this young man and I do not know what this man may have done to warrant this type of death ... We live in a society where people do not fear God and God is not pleased when innocent blood is shed ... The community is living in fear and it seems as if the criminals have reached a stage where they do not fear being caught and this is because the detection rate is low.”
At Beloman, Williamsville yesterday several mourners attended Bahadoor’s funeral.
During the eulogy, the mother of three was described by her youngest child Adona Dayaram as a loving person.
It was on New Year’s Day, around 10 p.m. that Deokienanan’s white Nissan B-14 car was found crashed at Inverness, Borde Narve.
Police were called to the scene and investigations led to the house he shared with Bahadoor a short distance away at Cemetery Street. Deokienanan’s body was found near a water tank. Around 6 a.m. the following day, Bahadoor’s body was discovered in a canefield.
They were yesterday cremated at the Shore of Peace, La Romaine.
Two suspects have since been taken into police custody as officers investigate claims that a land dispute may have led to the double murder.
