By Aaron Humes: The Indian and business community is still reeling from the shock of the cold-blooded murder of fifty-year-old businessman, Anil Asnaney, shot and killed at close range as he and his wife, Manisha, were about to get into their vehicle on Baymen Avenue after picking up food from Sumathi’s Indian Restaurant.
The gunmen were allegedly two youths on bikes who shot Anil multiple times, killing him almost instantly. His wife was grazed in her chest area.
Police Commissioner Chester Williams today said the Police Department is trying to establish a motive for the attack.
“So far, we have detained one person and we’re looking for another. The police have been busy trying to ascertain a motive, but from what we’re seeing, he was targeted. So there’s no doubt that he was the intended target. The question is what is the reason behind him being targeted. So we’re still trying to ascertain that. There are several pieces of evidence that we’re getting we believe can assist us, but I’m not going to go into too much details because I don’t want to alert those that we’re looking for. That is where we are at this time.”
