Attorney Sharma Boodram, son of convicted killer Nankissoon Boodram, also called Dole Chadee, was warded in a stable condition at hospital up to late yesterday.
Boodram’s father and eight members of the Chadee gang were convicted of the January 10, 1994 murders of members of a family – Deo, Rookmin, Hamilton and Monica Baboolal of Piparo. Siblings Osmond and Sumatee Baboolal survived the attack.
On June 4, 1999, the State hanged all nine gang members over a four-day period in Port of Spain.
Yesterday Sharma Boodram, 36, who is also a part-time farmer, reported to police that he was alone in a shed in a forested area at Pascal Road, Piparo, where he lives, when shortly after 3 am he heard a gunshot, then felt a burning sensation in his abdomen. He contacted the Police Command Centre about the shooting and staff alerted Princes Town police.
Boodram was taken to the Princes Town Area Hospital, where police met him and doctors later transferred him to the San Fernando General Hospital.
Cpl Richardson is leading investigations into the shooting.
Boodram is on $200,000 bail after being charged in January 2015 with possession of a gun, ammunition and one gramme of marijuana. Police had jointly charged him with a Venezuelan, Ramon Small de Jesus.
The case is pending in the Princes Town Magistrates’ Court against Boodram, who had pleaded not guilty. The Venezuelan, who entered guilty pleas, served two years in prison for the offences and was subsequently deported.
