Singapore court holds NRI guilty of killing wife in 2013

NRCRIhsA Singapore court has held Harvinder Singh guilty of killing his wife Jasvinder Kaur, 33, in December 2013. He was allegedly upset at her making long-distance calls to someone unknown to him.

Harvinder reportedly hit her during a fight and left her lying in bed. When he realised she was dead he allegedly called his friend Gursharan Singh to help him dispose of the body.

Unaware of the murder, Gursharan grew suspicious at the weight of the bag and demanded an explanation, then agreed to help Harvinder dispose of the body. Jasvinder’s headless body was found in Whampoa river and her corpse was wrapped in black trash bags, with her legs exposed and hands severed at the wrists.

Kaur worked as a beautician and after she did not return to work her husband called the employer to say she was returning to India.

Gursharan, 27, was jailed for 30 months for helping Harvinder who is still absconding after he fled to Malaysia and then on to India where he is still in hiding and is now on Interpol’s wanted list.
