“It’s sad for my family and my children,” says Kavi Rungloll, Reena’s husband when he was met and interviewed on Friday November 4.
Living in Petit-Verger, Saint-Pierre, Reena Rungloll, 34 and mother of two, was killed before being burned by her lover Jimmy Amlesh Mahadewa.
The charred body of Reena Rungloll was found in Moka region on Friday afternoon November 4, near the Bagatelle Dam site.
Jimmy Amlesh Mahadewa, a 32 year-old resident of Bois Cheri road in Moka, has confessed during interrogation and led investigators to where the body was burnt.
Reena Rungloll, a clerk in an offshore company, was missing since Monday October 31. Her husband said to have seen her for the last time the day before, the day of the Diwali festival.
“I left home at 6:00 AM [Monday October 31] to get to work. She went for jogging at that time. And I could not see her,” says Kavi Rungloll.
The daughter of Reena Rungloll, who is in Std 5, called her mother at around 1:00 PM. “Eventually, she did not return the calls. I have reported her missing in the evening,” says Kavi Rungloll.
Kavi Rungloll reveals that his marriage was not “100% OK” but he lived together with Reena because of their children – the second is a boy toddler.
Kavi Rungloll said he had suspicions that his late wife had a relationship with the suspect Jimmy Amlesh Mahadewa:
“It is through these suspicions that the police conducted their investigation.”
The husband said they tried to fix the problem before the family of the suspect:
“I even talked with him [the suspect]. Sipoze tou ti OK, mai par lasuit mo pa koner ki finn arive. Plizir dimunn inn dir mwa inn trouv zot ansam, me mo pa ti kroir bizin donn sa bann information la lapolis pou pa donn traka ban lezot fami. But the irreparable occurred.”
Kavi Rungloll says he did not expect a tragic end to his wife Reena.
