According to statements presented by Police Prosecutor Mansfield, on the day in question at Aranka Landing the two men had a misunderstanding. The misunderstanding was caused by Seecharan’s intrusion into a conversation Jabar was having with a woman; the intrusion angered Jabar who armed himself with a piece of wood and began to hit Seecharan about the body; Seecharan then wrested the piece of wood from Jabar and hurled it to his (Jabar) forehead.
