Senator hospitalised after bee attack

Senator Avinash Singh had to jump into a river to preserve his life on Saturday, after being attacked by a swarm of bees.

Up to late yesterday, Singh, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, remained warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, after being stung by more than a hundred bees.

Singh, a registered farmer, was ploughing his father’s land in Felicity, Chaguanas, when the bees invaded the area and swarmed around him, the T&T Guardian was told.

Vandals attack office of Avinash Singh, Parliamentary Secretary in Agriculture Ministry

Vandals have broken a window of Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Avinash Singh's office in Chaguanas.

The attack occurred either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

A passerby noticed the broken glass this morning and contacted Singh around 9.30 am. It appears as though stones were thrown at the window.

The office is located on Montrose Road, Chaguanas.

Singh believes it was a direct attack on him, noting that the objects that broke the glass went through the the exact spot where he usually sits.
