(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN – SNO) — A lifetime of friendship between two Fyzabad men came to a tragic end when one stabbed the other during an argument over $100 on Monday evening. As relatives of Neatha Ramsingh, 53, held their heads in disbelief, his killer surrendered himself to police.
Ramsingh and another friend were driving out of Pascal Road, Avocat Village around 6.20 pm when he stopped in front of his brother Ramesh Roopan’s house. As he got out of the car, Ramsingh met his friend and they both got into an argument. The friend then pulled out a knife and stabbed Ramsingh in his chest.
“Look, man, you stabbed me,” were Ramsingh’s last words before he dropped on the floor and bled to death his relatives said.
Roopan said he called the alleged killer’s brothers to see what happened and they reported that earlier he was behaving aggressively and they had urged him to behave. Roopan said the money his brother was killed for was $100 the alleged killer had borrowed.
“They were friends. My son got married next door and they were by my son’s father-in-law. They made a cook and they were liming there. They had a little falling out for $100. …I think the (killer) gave him back the $100 but this brother was vexed because somebody lied somewhere,” Roopan said.
