The Police Service is today mourning the passing of PC Renard Ganga, 24, who succumbed to his injuries from a vehicular accident on Saturday night.

An official statement from the Police Service reports that PC Ganga was proceeding north along the Southern Main Road, Cunupia, on Saturday evening, when he made contact with the rear bumper of a black Toyota vehicle, which led to him colliding head-on with a grey Nissan Tiida.

According to the TTPS, he was taken to the Chaguanas Health Facility by ambulance where he was stabilised and then transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, where at 11 pm on Saturday, he succumbed to his injuries.

“Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, and the Executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), are extending condolences to the relatives, colleagues and friends of No. 10388 Police Constable Renard Ganga who died last evening,” the statement from the Police Service read.

“He was ambitious, free-spirted, loving, caring and happy. He is always there to help, and he would put a smile on anyone’s face. He had a great sense of humour,” said his brother, Jerome Dawrika.

Meanwhile, Senior Superintendent of Traffic and Highway Patrol, Wayne Mystar, said PC Ganga’s passing is a tremendous loss to the Traffic and Highway Patrol.

“We extend condolences to his family and friends,” Senior Superintendent Mystar said.

“PC Ganga was an officer full of energy and ambition who always sought to further develop himself,” Senior Superintendent Mystar said, noting that PC Ganga had applied to become a regular police officer and a prisons officer.

PC Ganga enlisted into the TTPS on October 1st, 2019. Since his enlistment, he had been attached to the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch, Motorcycle Section.

Only last week, he was granted leave to prepare to enter into the Prison Service on Monday.

PC Ganga, of Chin Chin Road, Cunupia, leaves to mourn his mother, Nisha Ganga; father, Ramdeo Ganga; his three brothers Jerome Dawrika, Roland Ganga and Remington Ganga; two sisters, Natalia Ganga and Naomi Ganga; and his fiancée Saleena Deolal.
