An additional district and sessions judge, SAS Nagar, on Friday held a domestic help couple guilty of murder of a non-resident Indian (NRI) and awarded them life imprisonment. The NRI was murdered by the couple with an aim to grab his property.
In April 2010, NRI Surinder Singh, who was the resident of the USA, was found dead in mysterious circumstances at his residence in NRI Enclave, Kharar.
Smelling a rat in the natural death theory, the NRI's brother Mahinder Singh, a resident of Phase VII, SAS Nagar, filed a complaint with the Kharar police. He demanded that the incident should be investigated.
During the investigation, the police found that the power of attorney of his property was in the name of a domestic help. They were identified as Amarjeet Kaur and Amandeep Kumar, residents of Chamkaur Sahib.
The post-mortem examination report of the NRI also confirmed that he was poisoned. They poisoned him with an aim to grab his property.
Dilbag Singh Johal, additional district and sessions judge also slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 each on them.
