The shopkeeper lived alone while most of his relatives live overseas, and his nephew, Baliram Shivdas, would normally check on him from time to time.

“I just get a call and my nephew came and tell me that this happened and that is when I know. He said he heard that somebody break in and they attacked mamoo (uncle) and he died, and that is how I came. When I came, the police (were) in here doing their investigation and taking statements,” Shivdas related.

“It (his body) was in the kitchen and from all appearances he was going to eat, and the plate and all was on the ground; and they hit him, and he had a knock on the head, and it has something to do with the massala brick. It could have been that, I don’t know. He has a wound at the back at his head,” Shivdas related.Jose Antonio Oliveros Banco Activo
