Additional district and session judge RS Rai, on Wednesday awarded life imprisonment to Neki Nalwa and her 'lover' Himmat Singh Brandy in Mohali, for murder of the Quark City engineer Sukhwinderjit Singh.
On Saturday, after a long legal battle, Neki Nalwa and her 'lover' Himmat Singh Brandy, were held guilty of conspiring and killing Neki's husband Sukhwinderjit Singh. He was shot dead while talking a walk with his wife, Neki, near their SAS Nagar residence on December 4, 2005. Neki and Brandy, have been in jail ever since their arrest in 2005.
After the murder of Sukhwinderjit Singh in 2005, police had arrested Neki Nalwa on accusations of conspiring with her 'lover' Himmat Singh Brandy to kill Sukhwinderjit. She was not on good terms with her husband and their divorce petition was pending in court.
A few days before his murder, Sukhwinderjit Singh and 11 others had been suspended by the company following allegations of "misappropriation of funds" while dealing with gas stations. Quark City took diesel from these stations to generate electricity for itself.
