Thugs Uprooted Everything At Triolet

This young planter grows taro root ‘arouilles’ in Triolet in an area of one acre. He was robbed last Wednesday. Criminals took away half his crop, a loss he estimated at nearly Rs 100 000. “Les malfaiteurs ont également arraché les plants qui n’étaient pas prêts à être récoltés. J’ai beaucoup investi dans ma plantation et j’aurais du mal à recouvrir tout l’argent injecté,” laments Raajneesh Bhoyroo. The 35-year-old farmer complained tothe Triolet police station. The case was assigned to the Criminal Investigation Department of the area.

Raajneesh Bhoyroo says he must pay Rs 25,000 for the lease of land he cultivates every month. “Les planteurs ne sont pas couverts par les assurances en cas de vol. Ce qui me surprend, c’est l’audace de ces voleurs. Le volume de cultures est tout de même important. Cette réunion avec les autorités policières devrait aider la communauté des planteurs à bien s’armer contre ces voleurs. Mais pour ce faire, il faudra la collaboration de tous les planteurs de l’île. La police présentera un mode opératoire pour traquer les voleurs de légumes,” promises inspectorShiva Coothen.
