BUSINESSWOMAN Jenny Sharma yesterday expressed outrage over the killing of cousins Dale and Jerome Ramsahai, whose bodies were found in a burning car in Arima last Friday.
Sharma, in a posting on the social network Facebook, said the killings left her feeling "hysterical" because of "the manner in which these boys lost their lives".
Sharma posted: "HORRIBLE HORRIBLE !!!!!! Lord help our nation...Every day we read of some horrific story of people losing their love ones. I have so many experiences of my own. I was just hysterical the manner in which these young boys lost their lives. My prayer goes out to their family. We need as a nation to start doing something to help. I mean murder, accidents, rape, incest, theft, kidnappings and abuse."
In a telephone interview yesterday, Sharma, a restaurateur and mother of two, said she did not know the Ramsahai cousins but, like many others, was horrified over the deaths.
"I just felt horrible for them losing their lives and in such a horrible manner. I have a son, too, who is 19 years old. (Their parents) having worked hard to send them to university and then this. I don't know what I would do if I lost my son," said Sharma.
"All parents are probably thinking the way I am thinking, that the Government should be doing more where crime is concerned."
Sharma, who owns Jenny's on the Boulevard on Cipriani Boulevard in Port of Spain, said she now uses armed security protection. Her brother, Saran Kissoondan, was kidnapped ten years ago and kept for 18 days before a $1 million ransom was paid.
The bodies believed to be that of the Ramsahai cousins—Dale, 28, and Jerome, 27, of Debe—were found in the Heights of Guanapo at Arima.
The cousins, who were renting an apartment at Victoria Square in Port of Spain, were said to have gone liming on Thursday night.
In July 2010, Jerome's sister, attorney Liana Ramsahai, was threatened over the auctioning of properties formerly owned by the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen.
