A 41-YEAR-OLD woman taxi driver, who braved the dangerous East Coast Demerara night to join her husband in providing for their family, was shot dead Friday evening.

She was killed allegedly by teenage boys, one a neighbour, from her East Coast Demerara village of Success.

Dead is Seerajiee Singh of Lot 129 7th Street, Success. Police are hunting the young men, one an 18-year-old from the same village.

She leaves to mourn her husband, Pawan and their three children Indira, 24, Melissa, 14, and Kevin, 13.
Police said she was hired to do a pickup with her vehicle PJJ 3529, an AT 192 Carina, at Success, at about 22:30 h Friday. Bandits hijacked another AT 192 Carina car in Georgetown about 20 minutes after, Police said.

When in the vicinity of Turning Point, they further requested to be taken to Tucville where they held up, robbed and assaulted Daniels with a gun, then locked him in the car trunk. Police said he freed himself shortly after but the men escaped in the car with $8,000 in cash and a cellular phone.

The car was later found at Republic Park, Greater Georgetown, with the stereo system missing, Police reported.

Car-jackers have recently been targeting AT 192 Carina cars and several taxi drivers have been held up and robbed of their vehicles.
