Grenade hurled at C.N Sharma son's house.
Acting C.E.O of G.E.A & son of C.N Sharma, Mahender Sharma
The home of Mahender Sharma, head of the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA) and his wife, Marcia Nadir-Sharma came under a grenade attack Tuesday night. Fortunately the grenade did not explode.
The attack has left many unanswered questions.
Sharma bought the home, located in Prashad Nagar, from David Narine who served a drug induced sentence in New York. He is out of prison having been sentenced to time served but he must undergo five years of supervised release.
Sharma moved there in 2006. Sharma is the son of Channel Six’s owner, C.N. Sharma.
According to a press statement issued yesterday, the live grenade was thrown at the home around 23:30 hrs on Tuesday night while the official was at home with his family.
The statement said that at the time of the incident, the couple and a guest were in the residence when they heard a thud against the building.
Upon investigating, they saw that the shade of the emergency light had broken off the building and on the ground. Later, around 01:30 hrs yesterday morning, when Sharma was letting his guest out, he discovered what appeared to be a grenade in the yard.
According to the statement, it would appear that the grenade may have been aimed at the bedroom of the couple but missed its intended target, landing just below the window.
