Police say Rupie Budhu, 43, and several other people became involved in an altercation on Skyvalley Drive, near Cottrelle Boulevard and Gore Road shortly after 12:30 a.m.

Budhu was rushed to hospital with stab wounds, but did not survive.

It is not clear what led to the altercation. The victim had arrived home in a taxi shortly before he was stabbed.

Homicide investigators were still canvassing the neighbourhood hours after the incident.

The three accused — Moses Torrezao, 51, Nicholas Persaud, 18, and the boyfriend of Torrezao's daughter, Kevin Mahabir, 21 — are due to appear in court for a bail hearing on Tuesday.
