Cruise waiter shot outside club

Home/Cruise News/Cruise waiter shot outside club

A waiter from a British cruise ship has been shot during a visit to Philipsburg, on the Caribbean island of St Maarten.
Gahadhar Pradhan, who works on P&O’s Aurora, was pistol-whipped over the head during an attempted mugging, and then shot in the buttocks. The attack happened in the red light district of Sucker Garden and the victim was walking from Carolina’s Bar to the Seaman’s Beach Club.
One report describes the bars as “adult entertainment clubs” while another says they are brothels.
A resident from a nearby apartment block found Pradhan lying on the ground calling for help. She said a number of visiting tourists had been robbed in the area during recent weeks. Police Inspector Ricardo Henson said crew members from visiting cruise ships had been attacked on a number of occasions, but this was the first time a shot had been fired.
Pradhan was treated at the nearby St Maarten medical centre and is expected to rejoin the ship in St Kitts today.
