"He can do anybody pickney this" - Mother of alleged rape victim cries for justice

The mother of 14-year-old who died at the Port Mourant Hospital on Wednesday is calling for a thorough investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of her daughter.

MTV News Update understands that the teen left home on June 6 at about 8:00 hours to attend the JC Chandisingh Secondary in Rose Hall Town when she was picked up by the suspect.

After the girl joined the vehicle, the suspect drove off in the opposite direction and told the teen that he was going to purchase gas for the vehicle and would drop her to school after. The man never did, reportedly took the teen to a location in Albion where he raped her then dropped her back to the street in Belvedere where he picked her up.

The distraught mother of the teen, Tejwattie Hardial disclosed that her daughter confided in her that she was afraid to say anything and as such consumed a poisonous substance sometime after 14:00 hours on the day of the alleged attack. The teen was rushed to the Port Mourant Hospital where she was admitted as a patient and later succumbed.

Hardial told MTV News Update that she received the news that her daughter passed away Wednesday evening from a nurse. “I got six children and she was the second one, but she does do everything for me, me doesn’t really go nowhere like fuh carry the lil one to school she would do that, if meeting deh ah school she would say mommy don’t go, I would go so it really hard right now given what I pass through with she and if wasn’t that boy didn’t carry way she, she nah binna do this today what she did”

According to Hardial, she was told by her daughter that the hire car driver forced her to have sex with him but “she nah agree, she fight up”. She said that the accused previously resided in the area and he would usually pick up the father of the deceased teen to take him to the market.

“The seh he deh remand but I really want justice for my daughter because if he can do me daughter like this he can do anybody else pickney like this.”

Meanwhile, the hire car driver who has been identified as Ameer Inshanally of Sandreef Albion on the Corentyne was remanded to prison when he appeared at the Reliance Magistrates Court to answer a rape change on Wednesday.

The driver who was initially released on $50,000 station bail was not required to plead to the offence when it was read to him by Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh. The matter was then transferred to the Albion Magistrates Court for July 13.
