The man accused of killing Gabriella Du Barry at her Fyzabad home last Thursday, has been sent for a psychiatric evaluation at the St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital.
Vishal Birju, a PH driver of Pepper Village, Fyzabad appeared before Magistrate Ava Vandenberg-Bailey at the Siparia Magistrates Court this morning.
The court heard that on Thursday 9th January, Birju murdered Du Barry. He was not called upon to plead as the charge was laid indictably.
An attorney yesterday urged people who have been posting her photo on social media, identifying her as the victim in the alleged rape case against Public Services Association president Watson Duke to desist from doing so.
Cherry Ann Rajkumar made the appeal at her home in Vistabella, San Fernando, as she said whoever was responsible for posting the initial photo had made her a victim of “character assassination.”
She also called on the person/s responsible to apologise to her in a way that is fitting to repair the damage that had been done.
