A search continues today for kidnapped businessman, Sooklal Ramroop. He is 71-years-old. At around 3:30pm on Thursday, Ramroop was discovered missing from his St. Johns Village, Cipero Rd,San Fernando home by a relative who reportedly received a ransom demand phone call subsequent to his disappearance.
Ramroop is the second person in the southland to be kidnapped in recent time. One week ago Clint Beharry- the son of a businessman, was kidnapped from his Pleasentville home. His abductors had been dressed in police uniform. Before escaping with Beharry, the perpetrators robbed the family of $14,000 cash and an undisclosed amount of jewelry. A ransom demand of $100,000 had been made. He was found two days later in Barataria. He had been beaten.
It is uncertain as to whether the ransom demand was paid.
