Singapore: An Indian was today charged here with murdering his friend’s wife, another Indian national, whose decapitated body was found in a canal last week.
The accused was identified in sub courts as Gursharan Singh, 25, who the police had previously said was a friend of the victim Jasvinder Kaur’s husband Harvinder Singh. All three are Indian nationals.
Gursharan allegedly killed Kaur with the help of another man who is on the run, The Strait Times reported today.
The murder of Kaur, who worked as a beautician here, took place between December 10 and 12. The case will be heard again on December 27.
If convicted, Gursharan, who worked as a fork-lift driver, faces capital punishment. The police found Kaur’s trash bag-wrapped body floating in a canal on December 12.
The deceased’s head was missing and the hands were severed at the wrists.
The police have searched through thrash at an incineration plant but are yet to find body parts. Kaur’s identity was established through forensic means on Wednesday, the report said.
