Fifty-four-year-old Sukhdeo Dharamdat called “Toney” and his 25-year-old son, Eshwardat Dharamdat called “Bruddow” were on Tuesday sentenced to a total of 85 years in prison for the murder of Suresh Nandkishore called “Ravo”, which occurred on February 3, 2015, at Handsome Tree Mahaica, East Coast Demerara.Jailed: Eshwardat Dharamdat (left) and his father Sukhdeo DharamdatThe father and son were on trial before Justice Navindra Singh at the Demerara High Court. During the trial, the court heard that the duo and the deceased were involved in a confrontation regarding the erection of a fence on a plot of land.There was a confrontation which led to the two accused attacking the victim, his brother and father. During the attack, Nandkishore received head injuries and later died, while his father was knocked unconscious and his brother received bodily injuries.The two were initially charged jointly with Chaitram Dharamdat, Sukhdeo Dharamdat’s younger son. However, the younger Dharamdat died during the Camp Street Prison fire in 2017.In court on Tuesday, Sukhdeo Dharamdat was sentenced to 65 years for the capital offence of murder while his son was sentenced to 20 years for manslaughter, after being previously found guilty of the respective offences by a 12-member jury.Dead: Suresh NandkishoreBoth accused were represented by Attorneys-at-Law Pamela DaSantos, Brandon DaSantos and Alanna Lall while the State was represented by Prosecutors Tuanna Hardy, Abigail Gibbs and Teriq Mohammed.Sentencing was set for Tuesday to facilitate a probation report. This report revealed that the older Dharamdat (Sukhdeo) was described by neighbours and relatives as a bully, the report went on to say that the accused was covetous, especially when it comes to land ownership.Meanwhile, during the sentencing, Justice Singh stated that according to the probation report, the younger Dharamdat (Eshwardat), who expressed remorse for the incident, was not a bad person, rather, it is his father that is of negative influence.During the sentencing, Justice Singh initially give a 60-year sentence to the father, but added another 10 years for lack of remorse. He also subtracted five years for the probation report. On the other hand, his son was given a 30-year sentence from which a total of 10 years was deducted for expressing remorse and the probation report. The High Court judge also ordered that the time the duo spent on remand awaiting trial be deducted from their sentence.Reports stated that on the day in question, the deceased, his father, Bhopaul Nandkishore, and brother, Parmanand, were erecting a fence on their plot of land when they were approached by the Dharamdats and a heated argument ensued.The victims tried to avoid any further exchange of words by walking away but the Dharamdats did not gave up so easily. They reportedly armed themselves with the posts that were being used for the fence and attacked the victims during which the now dead man received lashes to his head, and his brother and father were also beaten with the weapon.The victim’s brother, Parmanand, managed to escape and seek help for his father and brother. However, the victim was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).

0Shares0000Neymar leaves Brazil’s training session with team physio Bruno Mazziotti© AFP Adrian DENNISSOCHI, Russia, June 19 – Neymar hobbled out of a training session on Tuesday, setting alarm bells ringing in the Brazil camp as they prepare for their second World Cup group game against Costa Rica on Friday.“Neymar came out of training today with a painful right ankle,” said Vinicius Rodrigues, a spokesman for the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). He put the the knock down to the number of fouls Neymar received in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don in Brazil’s opening Group E outing.Neymar had not taken part in training on Monday, as the side returned to their base in Sochi on Russia’s Black Sea coast.Rodrigues said the problem concerned the Paris Saint-Germain star’s ankle and not the foot he fractured in February, an injury that forced him to miss the rest of the club campaign.“As soon as he felt the pain he went to the physio. He will stay there for today and tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, and will train as normal tomorrow,” added Rodrigues.Brazil are then due to travel to Saint Petersburg, where they will play Friday’s game.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

The Manipur government’s plan to set up a bird sanctuary at the Loktak lake in Bishnupur district has met with stiff opposition from the villagers in nearby areas.A large number of residents of Thingnunggei village took out a massive procession against the government’s proposal on Sunday.“The villagers of Thingnunggei are poor and they have no other means of earning a livelihood except for catching fish and plucking vegetables from the lake. If fishing is banned in the lake, the villagers would starve. We are all for protection of birds, most of whom are migratory, but the new scheme should not be implemented at the cost of the poor villagers,” said one of the protesters.Declining number Thousands of migratory birds flock to the Loktak lake, the largest freshwater lake in north-eastern India, every year. However, in the past few years there has been a sharp decline in the number of migratory birds coming to the lake.Reports indicate that bird poachers are active in the area, targeting the winged guests. Officials of the forest department’s wildlife wing say in view of the widespread bird poaching at the lake, setting up of the sanctuary is a must. Birdwatchers on the other hand blame human intrusion, bird poaching and hydroelectric power project near the lake for the decline in the number of migratory birds and brow-antlered deer in the Keibul Lamjao national park in the vicinity.Brow-antlered deerSome decades ago, the villagers of the lake islets had agitated against setting up of the Keibul Lamjao National Park, the natural habitat of the endangered brow-antlered deer. They wanted the land demarcated for the park to be made available to them for cultivating paddy.Now, several years later, the latest census suggests that there are only 260 brow-antlered deer in the Keibul Lamjao national park.

March 16, 2017 Umesh Yadav celebrates the dismissal of Australia’s Matt Renshaw on the opening day of the third Test match at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium in Ranchi on Thursday. – Reuters COMMENTS COMMENT SHARE Published on Skipper Kohli suffers injury in Ranchi Test × Captain Steven Smith struck a plucky half century to guide Australia to 194 for four at tea on Day One of the third Test against India here today.Smith (80*) was in the middle alongside comeback man Glenn Maxwell (19*) in a session where Australia scored 85 runs in 30 overs at the loss of Peter Handscomb (19).It was a less productive session for the hosts, who had taken three crucial wickets in the first two hours of play, reducing the visitors to 109 for three.Ajinkya Rahane was the stand-in captain in the middle as Virat Kohli missed majority of the second session after hurting his shoulder with an awkward dive in the morning.Trying to save a boundary at deep midwicket in the 40th over, Kohli landed heavily on the fast and hard outfield of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association International Stadium Complex.Such was the impact that he had difficulty in standing up and was seen grimacing in pain, clutching his right shoulder to be rushed out of the field immediately.However, it was a memorable outing for rival skipper Smith, who became the third fastest batsman in terms of matches played to complete 5,000 Test runs in his 53rd Test.Sir Don Bradman had reached the milestone in his 36th Test, while Sunil Gavaskar took 52 matches to get past 5,000.Smith went about his job as usual on way to his 21st half-century and shared an undefeated 54-run partnership with Maxwell.Umesh looked the most impressive Indian bowler and gave the the only breakthrough of the session when he trapped Handscomb LBW with a brilliant inswinging yorker.After Handscomb’s departure, Smith found a fine ally in Maxwell.Earlier, Smith won a fine toss as their openers Matt Renshaw and David Warner played with a positive intent and cruised to 50 for no loss in 9.3 overs.But after spin was introduced at both ends in the 10th over, Ravindra Jadeja (1/49) struck in his first over with Warner (19) offering a simple return catch to the left-arm spinner.Renshaw’s first 24 runs came only in boundaries as once he cleared a fielder the ball would race past the rope.The seventh over and Ashwin came in with his ‘bunny’ Warner at the opposite end.At the other end, Warner took his time and hit his first boundary after 22 balls with an elegant cover drive off Yadav.With Warner looking to break free, Kohli employed spin attack at both ends and Jadeja was welcomed by the Aussie vice-captain with another crunching drive.The next ball, a juicy full-toss and Warner offered Jadeja a return catch for the first breakthrough for India. null Jadeja’s five-wicket haul limits Australia to 451 Umesh Yadav celebrates the dismissal of Australia’s Matt Renshaw on the opening day of the third Test match at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium in Ranchi on Thursday. – Reuters Pujara’s defiant century guides India to 360 for six cricket RELATED SHARE SHARE EMAIL
