Chutney Soca artiste Samraj Jaimungal, better known as Rikki Jai, escaped injuries during an armed robbery yesterday morning.

According to reports, around 12 am the singer and one of his drummers were talking outside their band room in San Juan when they noticed a Nissan B14 car circling the area.

The drummer said he and the Jai became very concerned and attempted to get into their vehicles.

However, an occupant of the Nissan car alighted and opened fire in the direction of Jai’s vechicle.

The attacker robbed the Chutney Soca Monarch of an undisclosed amount of money and his cellphone.

Jai said he is grateful that he is alive and was not hurt during the ordeal.

He told police he was very scared as everything happened so quickly.

Investigations are continuing.
