The Police High Command has launched a probe into reports that cops intercepted the suspected killers of businessman Richard Ramdial, but later released them.
Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, has ordered the police officers to provide statements detailing the sequence of events.
"I had review of the matter yesterday and the police stopped two men some distance away from the incident. The car was searched thoroughly, they didn't find anything and they subsequently released the men. That is the subject of an investigation too because we want to see whether they acted appropriately under the circumstance," he declared.
He said a decision will be made after the High Command examines the statements.
Mr. Ramdial, a motor vehicle dealer, was travelling in his dark blue Mercedes Benz SUV when he was fatally shot by two men on Ruthven Road on Wednesday afternoon. ACP Powell said it was a contract-style killing.
Meanwhile, ACP Powell said investigators are not getting information from persons who witnessed the killing of the businessman although the shooting took place in traffic.
He is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to share the information with the police.
