THE wife of assassinated acting Agriculture Minister Satyadeow Sawh heard her husband groaning in pain after the masked killers stormed into their house yesterday morning, but had to stay hidden in a bathroom to avoid the assassins.

Sattie Sawh yesterday said she hid, trembling in fear, emerging later to find her husband shot dead, along with his sister and a brother.

As the family and the nation tried to comprehend the horrors of the unprecedented assassination of a top government minister, President Bharrat Jagdeo ordered his security chiefs to take “maximum measures” to find the armed gang responsible for the “well planned and executed assassination”.

Those slain with Minister Sawh were his brother Rajpat Rai, sister Pulmatie Persaud and security guard Curtis Robertson
