He further stated that he died as a result of subgaleal or under-scalp haemorrhaging, which is bleeding in the potential space between the skull, as a result of head trauma.Meanwhile, the older Dharamdat (Sukhdeo) who led his defence by offering evidence into the matter, told the court that on the day in question (February 3, 2015) he and his son (Eshwardat) were working when his smaller son (Chaitram) informed him that the Nandkishores were repairing the fence on their plot of land.He further stated that when he approached the victims to inquire about what they were doing, a heated argument ensued and as a result, he and his smaller son were attacked by the deceased brother, Parmanand Nandkishore, who was armed with a cutlass which he used to inflict a chop to his face.The accused claimed that Eshwardat was nowhere around at the time of the attack.Murder accused: Eshwardat Dharamdat (left) and his father Sukhdeo DharamdatHowever, while under cross-examination by State Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy, the accused admitted to picking up a piece of wood and throwing it in the direction of the deceased as well as cuffing the dead man’s brother even though he posed no threat.He, nevertheless, denied that he started the argument and that his sons attacked the now dead man, his father and brother.
