Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith says it very irresponsible for persons on social media to be posting that kidnapped victim, Andrea Bharatt, has been found dead.

In a press release issued this afternoon, the CoP says he has been bombarded with calls and messages from the media and concerned citizens asking if the social media posts were correct. He also noticed that persons on social media have been sending condolences to the family of the victim, believing that social media posts are accurate.

Commissioner Griffith is asking such persons to desist from posting such information as it further traumatizes the family of the missing woman. Ms Bharatt, 23, was seen entering a taxi in Arima last Friday, January 29th. She has not been seen since.
