Hundreds of students and parents across the country flocked to their respective schools on Tuesday, enthusiastic to learn of their SEA exam results.
However, the journey to the Learning Living Institute in Arima for the parents of murdered teenager Videsh Subar was one full of anguish.
Videsh was among three pupils to write the SEA examination at the institution.
His mother Veena was so overcome with grief hat she was unable to make her way to the Principal’s office.
Instead Principal, Sheriffa Ward, delivered the results to his father, Lennox
Vice Principal of the school Alkhansa Ward-Joseph told the media that she was proud of Subar and the two girls who wrote the SEA but did not reveal where Videsh was placed.
Nevertheless, an Education Ministry official confirmed that the teenager was assigned to Arima North Secondary School.
Ward-Joseph said the staff and pupils at the school were still grieving for Videsh.
The Express was told that Subar’s mother was taken for medical treatment after leaving her son’s school.
Videsh was found dead in a bedroom at the home of his caregiver, Rose Mohammed, in Malabar last Wednesday.
His mother has not been able to come to terms with her child’s death and had to be taken to hospital several times since the incident.
Reports today indicate that two persons have been held in connection with the double murder.
