The body of Pritiviraj Gujadhur, aged 44, a Senior Health Inspector at the Municipality of Port Louis, was discovered on Monday at Edison Road, Rose Hill. Pritiviraj, father of a child aged 6, was a resident of Stanley.
Since 2008, Pritviraj had been working as inspector at the Port Louis Central Market. On Monday at around 11.15am, police were tipped of the presence of a grey Mazda car abandoned near a waste land at the corner of Gordon and Edison Roads near the former site of Charles Baudelaire Centre.

The window at the driver’s side was lowered and the seat was covered with blood. Police searched the area and discovered the body of Pritviraj lying in a pool of blood. The victim had a large gash at the throat and a deep wound on the stomach. The Rose Hill Criminal Investigaiton Division (CID), Inspector Jokhoo and his MCIT team and members of the scientific police (SOCO) rushed to the scene to collect evidence. It appeared that the victim was attacked in his car before being dragged to the spot where he was found dead.

Prithviraj’s death dated back to Sunday between 9.30pm and 10pm. Police had no problem in identifying the victim as his ID card was found on him. The victim’s relatives were informed of the murder. Residents of Edison and Gordon road commented on this macabre discovery. “At night there are strange persons looming over here. There are transvestites, prostitutes, pimps and drug addicts. Yet there are five private schools and respectable families in the area. But we can’t go out at night.”
Pritiviraj Gujadhur left his home around 6pm on Sunday and his wife Yogita started to worry when she saw that he was not back by 9pm.

The day after, she contacted families, friends and even Pritviraj’s workplace but no one had seen him. Yogita then reported her husband’s dissapearance to the police. The autopsy performed by Dr Sudesh Kumar Gungadin concluded the death of the victim was due to ten stabbing wounds at the abdomen and chest. Police enquiry concluded that he was killed after a larceny gone wrong.  It seemed that he was lured by a prostitute who was later joined by her accomplice who attacked the man in order to rob him. The alleged prostitute Prisca Jessica Gédéon Martinel, aged 23 was arrested on Tuesday night and her accomplice Louis Sonny Languillah, alias Rasta  later surrendered himself to police.

He denied any involvement in the murder. Yogita, the wife of the victim does not believe that her husband hired a prostitute. She said that he had probably been attacked by thugs trying to loot his casino gains.
