No arrest yet in female taxi-driver murder
TWO days after a female taxi driver was shot and killed by armed passengers while on a drop off on the East Coast Demerara, the police, up to press time yesterday, were still hunting an 18-year-old neighbour among the suspects whom, they believe, have gone into hiding.

The vehicle was hijacked by the killers, and has not yet been recovered.

The suspects’ relatives were taken into police custody for questioning, but were later released.

The taxi-driver, Seerajiee Singh, 41, of Success on the East Coast Demerara, was shot dead Friday night, reportedly by teenaged boys, one a neighbour from her village.

The dead woman of 129 7th Street, Success, was hired to do a pickup with her car, an AT 192 Carina, at Success, not far from her home, about 22:30 h.

She was last heard from when she told family members on the radio in her car that she was going to turn it off because of a police road block on the East Coast.

Shortly after the family received a telephone call from the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, saying that Singh was shot. They rushed to the hospital and were able to see her before she died of a gunshot wound in the mouth.

Singh’s killers shot her and left her on the Ogle Airstrip Road.

She reportedly told police who her killers were before she died.

She is survived by her taxi driver husband, Pawan, two daughters and a son.
