Court refuses to hear Indo-Canadian killer's appeal

india Updated: May 13, 2013 10:15 IST

Canada's Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by convicted Indo-Canadian killer Raminder Bhander who claimed that his rights were violated by the police.

Bhander had approached the country's top court after his appeal was rejected by a court of appeal in the Canadian province of British Columbia in November 2012, the South Asian Link reported. Bhander was convicted in July 2010 and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years for killing another Indo-Canadian man in 2008.

He claimed his rights were violated by police during questioning, when he confessed to the killing.

In January 2008, Bhander, Tejvir Bains and Bains's girlfriend had a fight in a restaurant in Surrey, British Columbia.

After the fight, Bhander went to a friend's house, and from there the two men went with a loaded rifle to a townhouse shared by Bains and his girlfriend.

As Bhander approached the house, Bains came down with a sword in hand.

Bhander then shot Bains four times, twice in the back, killing him on the spot.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder.

According to the report, the Supreme Court gave no reason for refusing to hear the appeal.
