The 72-year-old man who was attacked and beaten by his own son and three others at his Strathspey, East Coast Demerara home has died as a result of his injuries.
Deochand Ramsahoye passed away in hospital earlier today, never fully recovering from the beating he received on Sunday night.
One of his sons and three other men have been fingered in the beating death and have since been arrested.
Reports suggest that the elderly man was accused of covering up for an older son who was suspected of stealing a gold chain that belonged to one of the men who attacked him.
The old man was allegedly beaten with a mopstick by his youngest son and the three other men as they questioned him about the whereabouts of the older son and the stolen jewellery.
The house was ransacked and by the time the men left the small wooden house, the elderly man was bleeding badly from his head.
He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The Police investigation is ongoing.
