Over a dozen people are believed to be marked for death following the murder of millionaire car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo. His associates and residents from his community say they are now living under a self-imposed curfew as they brace for the expected casualties between warring family members.
No suspects have been detained in connection with the murder of Chaguanas businessman, Sheronn Sukhdeo.
Millionaire real estate and used car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo lived his life in the fast lane.
He loved fast money, gold jewellery and fast cars.
This was evident in the posts he made on social media showcasing his luxury vehicles and racing cars.
But while police probe a possible family link to his death, officers of the Central Division police said members of the Rasta City gang of Beetham Gardens were planning to kill Sukhdeo years ago, even though he was well protected by members of the main rival Muslim gang.
Investigators probing the murder of used-car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo said a family member can help them solve the case.
Homicide officers said Sukhdeo, 33, had many enemies and had been repeatedly threatened as his empire grew, purchasing million-dollar properties, a fleet of sport and luxury vehicles, and even a private plane.
Yesterday, at about 2 pm patrolling officers along the Caroni Savannah Road, near Sheron’s Auto, intercepted a vehicle and found a black plastic bag containing over $20,000 in cash from the occupants.
Sheldon Sukhdeo, the brother of car dealer Sheron, was shot in the arm last evening while parked outside a place known as foreplay in San Fernando.
Sukhdeo and a female companion escaped death and serious injury when they were struck during a drive-by shooting in San Fernando.
They were seated in his white Mercedes Benz along when the incident occurred.
Police said the car was parked near 4play guest house along Bertrand street, San Fernando when a vehicle passed firing several shots.
A photo appearing on the Instagram page of Central businessman Sheron Sukhdeo seems to suggest that he has purchased a light aircraft.
Sukhdeo is popular for a car business he runs in Chaguanas.
The post on his Instagram page - sherons_auto - shows a picture of a fixed-wing, multi-engine propeller aircraft with Sukhdeo on the wing.
It is captioned, "Fed up buy cars" and is followed by another comment "All thanks to the father for all his blessings".
The aircraft is registered as N6739Y.
Car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo will spend the night in prison as he has been refused bail on a charge of breaching a protection order.
Sukhdeo, 28 of Caroni Savannah Road, Chaguanas appeared before magistrate Wendy Dougdeen-Bally today.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
His attorney Taradath Singh requested bail for Sukhdeo and the magistrate asked for his passport be produced.
He will return to court on Thursday at which time the court expects to receive his passport to allow the magistrate to make a decision.
