Quarry worker gunned down in Santa Cruz

Saastri Gopaul, a quarry supervisor for the Seereeram Brothers Limited, was shot and killed on his way home from work on Tuesday afternoon.

Around 2:30pm, Gopaul, who was driving the company’s van, was about to exit the Stollmeyer Quarry in Santa Cruz, when the vehicle was blocked by a car parked a short distance away from the guard booth on Cangrejal Trace.

Reports state that two gunmen got out from the waiting Nissan Tiida and began shooting at Gopaul, causing the truck to run off the road.

Gopaul died at the scene.

Investigations are ongoing
