Upon the conclusion of his testimony, the Magistrate adjourned the matter until June 27, 2019.Thirty-one-year-old Khan, of Austin Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, was charged for the attempted murder of Baljeet following an incident on October 28, 2018 at a popular nightclub on Main Street, Georgetown.It was reported that Khan unlawfully and maliciously wounded Baljeet, with intent to murder him.On the day in question, Baljeet and some friends were leaving the nightclub when they were confronted by Khan, who was standing at the gateway.As a result, Baljeet walked between Khan and his friends. This seemingly annoyed Khan, who in turn dealt Baljeet several punches to his head and face, causing him to fall to the ground. It was while Baljeet was on the ground that Khan took a glass bottle and slashed him on the right side of his face.Khan then continued to kick and punch the victim while he was lying on the ground.Baljeet, who was unconscious, was then picked up and rushed to a private institution where he underwent surgery.Baljeet previously testified in court and related that he heard what appeared to be gunshots and upon making his way to the gate, he saw Khan and another man identified as Kevin, also called “Fatman” standing next to a silver grey BMW motor car.He recalled walking between the two men as he made his way to his vehicle and feeling a blow to the back of his head. As he turned around, he saw the accused, Khan.Khan, he told the court, dealt him two lashes to his head and face, causing him to fall to the ground.On the ground, Khan continued to punch him to the body especially the face, despite him attempting to crawl away. Baljeet also related that he, along with bystanders, begged Khan to stop hitting him, but he refused to listen.The Virtual Complainant (VC) finally managed to crawl and held onto a metal gate, but Khan further kicked him to his face causing his head to keep hitting the gate.Standing in the witness box, with his face barely showing through the vents, he remembered that after a while, he started to “see dark”.He later woke up at the Woodlands Hospital.Baljeet, after being released from the Hospital, was rushed back to the facility in November 2019 for excessive bleeding and underwent emergency surgery.last_img
