Mohali district court today convicted Neki Nalwa and her alleged lover Himmat Singh Brandy for murdering Sukhwinderjit Singh, Neki's husband in December, 2005.


Sukhwinderjit Singh, an engineer at QuarkCity was shot dead by Himmat while he was talking a walk with his wife near his residence in SAS Nagar on December 4, 2005. Neki and Brandy, have been in jail ever since their arrest in 2005.

The court has also convicted Brandy's friend Paramvir, who had provided the cartridges that were used in the killing. Paramvir, who had been on bail was taken into custody by the police following the conviction.

QuarkCity engineer Sukhwinderjit Singh was shot dead while talking a walk with his wife, Neki, near their SAS Nagar residence on December 4, 2005. A few days later, police arrested Neki Nalwa, accusing her of conspiring with her 'lover' Himmat Singh Brandy to kill Sukhwinderjit. Neki was not on good terms with her husband and the couple's divorce petition was pending in court.

According to the police, Sukhwinderjit Singh and 11 others had been suspended by the company following allegations of "misappropriation of funds" while dealing with gas stations a few days before his murder. The company took diesel from these stations to generate electricity for itself.

The court is likely to pronounce the quantum of sentence on Monday.
