Woman’s throat slit

Cecily Asson Thursday, May 18 2017

HOUSEWIFE Savitri Mohammed, 54, was found gagged, hands tied, her feet tied and her throat slit from end to end yesterday inside her Bonne Aventure, Gasparillo home. She was home alone at the time.

The shocking discovery was made at midday by Mohammed’s husband, self-employed businessman Sadiq Mohammed, 40, when he returned home from a visit to the bank. On seeing his wife almost decapitated, Mohammed is said to have collapsed and had to be rushed to the Gasparillo Health Centre for treatment.

Mohammed later told police he left home at 10 am to go to the bank.

Robbery has been ruled out as investigators reported nothing was stolen and the house was not ransacked. Weeping relatives gathered outside the scene while police were in the bedroom where Mohammed’s body was found on a bed. The couple, married for 14 years, had no children.

Savitri who worked for years in the cosmetic industry was well known for her flamboyant hair colours and heavy make up.

Her brother Glen Caran said the couple lived a lived a, “nice and quiet life” and looked out for each other. “They were a good couple who looked out for each other and supported each other,” he said.

“I always say every murder has a reason, but now that it has reached home to me I have a different view because I can’t find a reason why someone would kill my sister. I hope we get justice and that the police find the person who did this. She was such a warm and loving person,” Caran said. Older sister Evelyn Sookram, 61 said she and Savitri shared a close relationship and remains baffled as to why someone would want her dead. “It’s a gruesome murder and I still can’t understand why it happened,” said sister-in-law Farida Mohammed, adding she got the news while in church. Police said that neighbours indicated hearing no scream, or shout for help that could have alerted them to something taking place in Mohammed’s house.
