Cops to review footage from murder scene

Monday, May 21, 2018

Kelly Chatoor, brother of murdered businessman Navindra “Nari” Chatoor, said pertinent information has been passed on to the police and he is confident his family will get justice.

Navindra Chatoor was shot four times at point-blank range by a gunman who walked up to him shortly after 10 pm last Monday while he was serving customers from a burger cart at Cross Crossings, San Fernando. An autopsy revealed that he died of gunshot wounds to the head and upper body.

His brother praised the police for responding quickly to the scene.

“We have no problems so far and we are confident that we will get justice,” he said.

Investigating officers have taken statements from eyewitness and have a description of the gunman. They will be reviewing surveillance footage from nearby businessess.

Chatoor believes his brother’s murder was a “hit” and that it might be linked to the murder of another brother, Rishi, who was fatally shot on May 22, 2015, at a bar not too far from his home in St John’s Village.

Chatoor, who is the registered owner of Chatoor’s Burgers, a business he started on August 3, 1996, on the Gulf City Link Road, said his mother, Shirley, is very distraught about the violent death of another of her sons.

However, he was reluctant to comment further on his father’s killing in 2006 and the murder of another brother, Kimraj, in 2008. He did point out, however, that yet another sibling, Balchan, had died from poisoning.

Chatoor said his family is law-abiding and are business people who are “not involved in anything illegal.”

The murder of Nari Chatoor, the fifth member of the family to be killed, took place nine days before the three-year anniversary of brother Rishi’s death. His funeral took place last Friday morning.
