Singh of Lot 529 Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was fatally stabbed to the neck on Regent Street at about 18:00h on Wednesday.

According to the Police, Singh was selling kitchen utensils and other items in the company of two other males when the suspect approached him with a knife and dealt him a stab to the right side neck.
