A 14-year-old girl died at the Port Mourant Hospital on Wednesday night days after she was reportedly raped by a hire car driver.

The child had consumed a poisonous substance shortly after claiming she was raped by Ameer Inshanally of Sand Reef, Albion, Berbice.

Inshanally, 30, was arrested on June 6 and appeared at the Reliance Magistrate’s Court on June 15 where he was charged with the rape of a child under the age of 16.

Inshanally appeared before Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh and was not required to plea to the indictable charge. He was remanded to prison and will return to court at Albion on July 13, 2022.

The victim had told police from her hospital bed that Inshanally had offered to take her to school and she agreed since she knew him as a hire car driver. She told police that while in the car, Inshanally drove past her school and took her down a dam in Albion on the Corentyne.

She disclosed that he then stopped the car and raped her in the back seat.

After committing the act, he dropped her off at the junction of her street.

The victim told police that after she got home, she spoke with her mother but was too scared to detail what had happened. She said she waited until her mother fell asleep to consume the substance.

something is wrong with the guyana system when a teenager feels it's the end of her life after being raped. she should have told her mom, then get an abortion if she got pregnant, then finish her schooling and move on with her life. in this day and age with social media, tv, etc., i'm sure she knew that women have choices. they need to set up counseling groups overseen by the village elders - a priest, teacher, etc.

So sad…

Prez..itisnt as simple at this..this kid was traumatised n it affected her mentallly..

u r correct though..the system shud have taken care ofher after she reported it..rather than just sending her  home after she made report to police .

also do we know how  her mom reacted..wht was her response?? Did she uther to shmae n tell her that her future was doomed??  Who knows?

Many moms hid ( n may still b hiding) sexual abuse of their daughters for ‘fear’ of wht people would say or think

all because of wht ‘people would say’ …the SHAME.  So then they  ADD SHAME to the victims, making them feel worthless.  

Sexual abuse /rape is severe  trauma to a woman n esp young girls…some can deal with it..some end up with depression n some cant handle it n chose to end their lives. Some keep  it a secret n some r braveenough to speak out abt it.  

This kid should have been sent to to be assessed (mental)  at some counselling clinic  after she reported the rape…n followed up very closely.

very sad story! n It breaks my  heart..14 yr old
