Body of murdered NRI Ranjit Power found

qp0ua5hrPolice say the body of NRI hotelier Ranjit Singh Power, 54, was found by divers near Ambala, Punjab.

A family friend Darshan Singh currently in India, said the body was found in a lake and was in poor condition but it was the right height and wore exactly the same bangle as Power wore. The UK Foreign Office also confirmed the death of a British national in India.

Power was last seen at an airport in Amritsar on May 8 and was reported missing by his family in Wolverhampton after they did not hear from him.

Taxi driver Sukhdev Singh has been charged as officials say he confessed to the crime.

Paying tribute, Mr Power’s son Gian and daughter Emma described him as a proud and warm-hearted man who went out of his way to care for and support those around him.
