A wife’s grief

Kamini Maharaj, wife of businessman Brian Bahcan (inset), is consoled by relatives at her Longdenville home yesterday, after she received a call believed to be from the abductors of her husband. The callers did not respond to her questions. Bachan was abducted on Wednesday night, but there was no ransom demand up to yesterday evening.
