The Guyana Police Force has reported that it is continuing with its probe of the reported kidnapping.
“Investigations so far indicate that Rajendra Singh was in his motor vehicle PFF 982 in front of his business place when his wife observed two men entering the vehicle which then drove off. She later received a phone call demanding the sum of $50M for the safe return of her husband”, a police statement said.
According to the Police, the motor car has been found abandoned on the Goedverwagting Railway Embankment, ECD, by members of the Cummings Lodge Community Policing Group. It has been handed over to the police.
