  1. Controlling Muslim husband who forced wife to convert to Islam and wear a hijab before he killed her while she was pregnant is jailed for 17 years Mohammed Badiuzzaman admitted killing mother-of-three Sabeen Thandi He told colleagues he planned to kill wife and bragged jails were 'easy peasy' Forced victim into Muslim marriage and stopped her leaving house alone He was arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill but later released Within weeks she was found strangled at her home in London by police By Emily Davies Published: 16:05, 27 May 2014 | Updated: 17:12, 27 May 2014 Victim: Mother-of-three Sabeen Thandi, 37, was forced her to wear a hijab head scarf and pressurised into an Islamic marriage by husband Mohammed Badiuzzaman A husband who strangled to death his pregnant wife two weeks after police arrested him for threatening to kill her with a hammer was sentenced to life imprisonment today. Mohammed Badiuzzaman, 34, pleaded guilty to murdering mother-of-three Sabeen Thandi at the Old Bailey earlier this month. Before the killing he told colleagues he planned to kill his wife, bragged that UK jail was ‘easy peasy’ and ranted about Oscar Pistorius. He was today sentenced to a minimum of 17 years in prison by Judge Christopher Moss QC, who described the defendant as ‘manipulative, devious and controlling’. Mrs Thandi was strangled at her home in Forest Gate, London, in July last year, a fortnight after she obtained a restraining order against her husband, and after police had arrested him for making death threats. Police officers are now under investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission for releasing Badiuzzaman before he went on to kill. Badiuzzaman had forced Mrs Thandi into a Muslim marriage and had moved in with her two months after they began dating in November 2012. He was controlling, preventing her from leaving the house alone, forcing her to throw away ‘revealing’ clothes and instead wear a hijab because otherwise she would ‘feel his wrath’. The security guard even tried to sell her home by visiting an estate agents and pretending he owned the property. Doctor’s receptionist Mrs Thandi grew sick of Badiuzzaman’s abuse and visited solicitors in Watford in June last year seeking a divorce. She took out an order from Watford County Court on June 17 against Badiuzzaman to prevent him from entering her home, as she feared for her children’s safety. But two days later Badiuzzaman became enraged after discovering Mrs Thandi was in love with a man in Pakistan whom she had met on Facebook, named in court as only as Majid. Badiuzzaman duped his wife into getting into the car with him on the premise of taking her to work, but instead he drove her around for three hours and threatened her. He said he had a hammer in his car boot and that if she did not revoke the order against him she would never see her son again, and that police would ‘find parts of her body in bits in bin bags’. Mrs Thandi pleaded with her solicitors to revoke the order, and they proceeded to call the police. Badiuzzaman was arrested on suspicion of threats to kill and unlawful imprisonment. While being cautioned he made no comment and grinned at police, but he was later released. +2 Jailed: Badiuzzaman, 34, strangled his pregnant wife Sabeen Thandi to death after police arrested him for threatening her with a hammer In the early hours of July 7 police received two silent 999 calls from the home the couple had shared and were met by Badiuzzaman at the door who said his wife was at work. He was calm and made conversation with officers but when they searched the property they found her lifeless body under a duvet in the bedroom. Badiuzzaman told police: ‘I’ve killed my wife.’ But when paramedics asked him to tell them what he had done so that they might attempt to save her, he said he did not know. Mrs Thandi was taken to Newham University Hospital where she was confirmed dead, and a post-mortem gave the cause of death as strangulation. Before the killing he had told colleagues he intended to ‘stab’ Mrs Thandi and had talked for an hour about high-profile domestic violence murder cases of Oscar Pistorius and Shrien Dewani. He told colleagues ‘they have got away with it’ and ‘jail in Britain is easy peasy’. Sentencing Judge Moss said: ‘From all that I’ve heard about you I have no doubt that you are a manipulative, devious and controlling person with a serious anger management issue. ‘It’s clear from the way in which she died that you intended that she should die. You strangled her in her bedroom in her own home.’ He added: ‘You murdered your estranged wife in her own home which you were excluded from by order of the county court. ‘It’s clear from the evidence in the case that this was an order you deserved and which you had no respect for, indeed you resented it. ‘You have deprived those children of the love and care of their mother in their formative years of their lives. You had no conceivable defence.’ The judge said he took into some account the fact that the defendant had pleaded guilty one day before the case was listed, and that he had shown some remorse, but added: ‘I suspect you feel sorrier for yourself than those affected by your actions.’ Officer in the case, Detective Inspector Euan McKeeve said: ‘We are very satisfied with the outcome of the case. Domestic violence in all its forms is totally abhorrent and cannot be tolerated. There’s likely to be some learning from the IPCC investigation, but because that investigation is ongoing I am unable to comment further at this time.’ Hertfordshire Police and the Met Police are now being investigated by the IPCC in relation to the incident. An IPCC spokesman said: ‘The investigation is nearing conclusion, with most lines of enquiry completed by investigators. ‘We have interviewed ten officers and a civilian staff member from the Metropolitan Police Service under misconduct caution, in relation to their contact with Mrs Thandi prior to her death on 7 July 2013. Two officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary have also been interviewed under misconduct caution, in relation to their contact with Mrs Thandi on 19 June 2013. ‘We have also taken statements from several independent witnesses, and are keeping the family updated on the progress of our investigation.’

  5. The best friend of a UK businessman who went missing in India has been named by police as a suspect in his murder. Hotelier Ranjit Singh Power, from Wolverhampton, disappeared while on a business trip to Punjab last year. A taxi driver has confessed to his murder, but police in India want to arrest his business partner, Baldev Singh Deol, also of Wolverhampton, who is thought to be in the UK. Mr Power's family say they want answers about his final days and justice. Despite Interpol issuing an arrest warrant, an extradition notice submitted to the Indian Central Bureau for Investigation has not been processed, meaning police officers in England have not yet been asked to act. Mr Power, who ran the Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton, was last seen at an airport in Amritsar on 8 May 2015. He was reported missing when he did not contact his family for a week. Taxi driver Sukhdev Singh, who was arrested in Punjab last May, remains in custody. BBC's India correspondent Sanjoy Majumder previously said local detectives believed he was acting at the behest of someone else which may have something to do with Mr Power's business dealings in India and the UK. Mr Deol, a Power family friend of 30 years, is believed to be in the UK, Punjab Police said. His arrest warrant has been featured on Interpol's website. Police in the West Midlands say they have not had any approach from police in India for assistance. Mr Power's brother, Amrik Singh Power, said although he was frustrated by the delay in extradition, he felt "relieved" over the Indian police efforts. "What started off as anger and then frustration, is kind of like relief," he said. "It's not going to bring my brother back. We didn't have a funeral, we didn't have Ranjit's body. "But at least with some answers as to why he went out there, we feel relieved that we are nearly there." Local police have yet to find the 54-year-old's body but are treating his death as murder. In October, his daughter said a body returned to the UK by Punjab police was not her father's. The corpse, found in an Indian river, was initially thought to be that of Mr Power but DNA and dental analysis ruled out a match. Amrik Singh Powar, of Punjab Police, said: "The offence was committed here, but they are citizens from the UK. So both countries [are] involved in this case. "I am confident it will be moving to a conclusion now." West Midlands Police said it would "assist with any inquiries should a request be made." The Foreign Office said it was providing support to Mr Power's family. The Home Office would not comment on whether an extradition request had been made. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-37230293

The film purports to show migrant worker Ram Singh held captive and hanging chained by his hands and feet after he was accused of stealing. While most the people seen in the video stand by doing nothing, one man, armed with a bat, repeatedly strikes him while he cries out in pain. +3 The video purports to show Ram Singh being held captive during an in ordeal that ended in his death The unedited version of the video, filmed in the city of Amritsar and which lasts for 34 minutes, is too distressing to publish. It is not clear who filmed the brutal assault, but it was alleged to have been a punishment inflicted by an employer following an allegation of workplace theft. Share The country's north is home to a large population of migrant workers, where human rights abuses are often reported among workers. The Times of India reported the video was filmed in the factory where Ram Singh worked. His wife explained there was a theft at the factory and her husband was blamed, with a group of men turning up at the couple's home to threaten him. She said: 'On Thursday, a few people came to our house in Khankot village in a car and forcibly took away my husband. 'They beat him mercilessly and threw him on [the] road. Later his body was recovered.' Her account of the events matched that given by a nearby resident, who also described seeing him being bundled into a car. India Times reported bystanders can also be heard hurling abuse at him in Punjabi. A spokesperson at the nearby police office confirmed it had opened a case report against three people, who had not yet been found. The incident occurred at a factory in the city of Amritsar, northern India, which is famed for its Golden Temple (pictured) Read more:Hung upside down, migrant labourer mercilessly beaten to death - The Times of India Migrant Labourer Hung Upside Down And Beaten To Death In Punjab Factory, Video Of Murder Goes Viral
  7. Forest Gate man murdered pregnant wife in a fit of rage Mohammed Badiuzzaman has admitted killling Sabeen Thandi Kay Atwal, Chief Reporter Tuesday, May 6, 2014 3:53 PM A controlling man who strangled his pregnant wife, leaving her three children without a mother, has pleaded guilty to her murder at the Old Bailey today. Sabeen Thandi's body was found at her Forest Gate home on July 7 last year Mohammed Badiuzzaman, 35, a security guard of no fixed abode, murdered Sabeen Thandi in a fit of rage on July 7 last year after discovering that she had begun a relationship with someone else. Mohammed Badiuzzaman began a relationship with Sabeen Thandi, 37, in November 2012 and moved into her property in January 2013. He became controlling and forced her to wear a hijab. In April 2013 he pressured her into an Islamic marriage. He even tried to sell her home by pretending he was the owner to estate agents. He refused to let her go out on her own and would not let her travel to and from work as a doctors receptionist. By June 14 2013 she had had enough of Mohammed and visited a solicitors in Watford. Three days later, Watford County Court put in place a non-molestation order against Mohammed preventing him from entering the her home in Disraeli Road, Forest Gate. She feared for her safety and the safety of her three children. Two days later Mohammed forced her to revoke the order, telling her she would never see her son again if she did not. When it became clear that Sabeen Thandi had been forced to attend the solicitors office they called police. Mohammed Badiuzzaman was arrested on suspicion of threats to kill and unlawful imprisonment. He was later released. In the early hours of July 7 last year officers were called to Disraeli Road after an abandoned call was made from the address. Mohammed Badiuzzaman answered the door and told officers there was only himself and his daughter in the address. When officers entered the property and asked Mohammed where the children’s mother was, he said she had not returned from work. Officers found her lifeless body in a bedroom. She had been strangled. Mohammed was arrested for her murder. Detective Inspector Euan McKeeve said: “Mohammed learnt that Sabeen had begun a relationship with someone else and murdered his wife in a fit of rage. “This tragedy has left three children without a loving mother in the prime of her life.” He is due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey on May 27. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the actions of officers from the MPS as well as Hertfordshire Police.
  8. Two men have been found guilty of murdering a grandmother who was left to die in a shop basement. Mohammed Islam, 29, from Gillingham, and Murshed Miah, 38, from Maidstone, attacked Harjit Chaggar at the store in Chatham, Kent, last September. They were also found guilty of preventing Mrs Chaggar's lawful burial, along with Abdul Hannan, 44, from Maidstone, and Rasad Miah, of Chatham, Hannan was found not guilty of murder. The men denied all of the charges. Mrs Chaggar's body was only found 12 days after she went missing because of the smell, Canterbury Crown Court heard. 'Motive unclear' Islam worked as a butcher at the store in Luton Road at the time Mrs Chaggar disappeared on 2 September. Jurors heard Mrs Chaggar's badly decomposed body was concealed in a bin bag under the floor boards and her injuries were consistent with being thrown into the basement while still alive. Nigel Pilkington, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said the motive for the murder was unclear. He said some of Mrs Chaggar's belongings were missing and so the most probable motive was robbery. Abdur Rohim, who used to cook at the food store, gave evidence from Bangladesh by video link. Murshed Miah, Abdul Hannan and Mohammed Liakat Islam all denied murder He told the court he never met Mrs Chaggar, but said in the days leading up to the discovery of the body, there had been "a horrible smell" in the shop. Mr Rohim said staff lit incense sticks to get rid of it. 'Callous' Sani Globe was described in court as a grocery shop and a butchers which supplied local restaurants. Jurors heard Hannan and his brother Murshed Miah ran the business while Rasad Miah worked in the shop along with Mr Islam. CCTV captured Mrs Chaggar walking through Chatham Judge Adele Williams praised the dignity of Mrs Chaggar's family and the police investigation. However, shouting from the gallery, Hannan's wife said: "You've not been just. My husband is innocent." Det Supt Rob Vinson, from Kent Police, said the men's silence meant he was unable to tell Mrs Chaggar's family exactly how and why she was attacked and left to die. Nigel Pilkington, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "The defendants all knew... how she came to be killed and why. "The denials of her murder and their collective attempts to hide the truth were particularly callous and aggravated further by the fact that they left her to die." Her son Kuldish Chaggar said: "We pray that she is now at peace and can give us the strength to carry on without her no matter what obstacles are placed in our way, for none can be bigger than losing her. "We remember the good times, the smiles and laughter of a loved and treasured mother and grandmother who had so many hopes and plans for the future." The men are due to be sentenced on 20 May. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-27326538
  9. Murder hunt on after father pushed under truck while fighting off a gang of robbers Murder scene: Forensic officers in Barking Picture: Nigel Howard A murder hunt was launched today after a businessman was pushed into the path of a lorry while fighting off a gang of robbers. Father-of-two Shammi Atwal, 44, was shoved into the road as he struggled against a group of up to ten raiders armed with a sledgehammer and metal bars. The attempted robbery at his company, Glenn & Co drinks warehouse in Barking, took place at around 10.20 am yesterday. The company boss died after the impact with the truck and a post mortem is due to be held later today. Death: Shammi Atwal, 44, was shoved into the road in the path of a truck His wife, Deepa who witnessed the raid, suffered minor injuries and was said by family to be "devastated". Detectives paid tribute to the bravery of Mr Atwal saying he was defending his wife and his business. They are appealing for information on the gang, described as white men, who were armed with a sledgehammer and metal bars. Mr Atwal’s uncle Tarsem Singh, 65, described his nephew today as an "honourable hard working family man." He said: "He worked very very hard and the rest of the time was spent with his family or at the Seikh temple. "He had a good business because he was dedicated. He did charity work at the Seikh temples in Ilford and Barking. He would help anyone out. He will be so missed by so many people. He was very honourable and one of the nicest people you could meet and a wonderful father." Mr Atwal's friends today spoke of their shock while paying tribute to his heroism. Friend and former colleague, Sohan Hare, 65, said: “I’m very shocked, horrified and sad that a good man like this, who was trying to do the right thing, has gone. "He was a very hard worker for his family who was a very close friend and this is so unfortunate. He was loved by everyone.“It’s absolutely terrible. He was a very energetic, very peaceful and a very decent man who would help anybody and everybody in the community.” He added: “Some people went there who then tried to rob them, then there was a fight between the two sides, between the robbers and the people who were in [Glenn and Co], and the fight went from inside to outside. He (Mr Atwal) was pushed into the road and into the lorry. It was about ten people who tried to rob it I think.” Investigation: Police at the scene in Barking Picture: Nigel Howard Mr Atwal, from Manor Road, Chigwell, has a daughter and son, aged four and seven. He co-owned Glenn and Co, a wholesale distributor of beers, wines, ales and snacks, and supplies several local pubs, for seven years. Detective Chief Inspector Neale Baldock, who is leading the murder inquiry, said: “This was a man trying to stop thieves robbing his business. “He acted bravely in defence of his wife and managed to chase the robbers from his premises only for him to be pushed in front of a moving lorry. “People in the community know who committed this appalling and cowardly crime and I would urge them to contact my officers.” Alan Suleyman, a neighbouring trader, said: “He got robbed, then he got run over, which I heard happened after [Mr Atwal] went after one of the robbers. It’s absolutely shocking. We have had robberies here before but this is unbelievable.” Another trader, who wished not to be named, said: “I drove past not so long after it happened and there was a guy laying under the back of a lorry behind lots of police, so that’s when I knew it was really bad.” They were unable to confirm if the robbers escaped with any stock. It is understood that Mrs Atwal's purse was taken. There have been no arrests. A cordon was set up with the road remaining closed until late last night. Witnesses should call 020 8345 1570 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Kulwant Singh Grewal: Indian police investigate London man's murder By Poonam TanejaBBC Asian Network Indian police are investigating the murder of a London grandfather in Punjab. The body of Kulwant Singh Grewal, 76, from Southall, west London, was found in a village near the city of Ludhiana, northern India, on 30 May. Mr Grewal had gone to India to settle a property dispute in the Punjab courts and he was last seen alive on 16 May. His family in the UK became concerned after he missed a court appearance and alerted police. 'We want justice' Mr Grewal's son Iqbal Grewal, who lives in Berkshire, said: "My mother phoned me on my mobile and said to me, 'They've just found his body'. "I just cried to myself." His family said the grandfather-of-two was stabbed to death. Mr Grewal's wife Mukhtiar Grewal has travelled to India to search for answers. "Why would anyone want to attack a 76-year-old man?" said Mr Grewal "We now want justice. "That's the only thing that will make me feel whole again. "They've taken a part of me away, whoever has done this - if they can serve life in prison for this, at least I'll get some closure." The Indian police have confirmed a murder investigation has been launched but have given no further details. No arrests have been made. Kulwant Singh Grewal, a commercial landlord, emigrated to the UK from Singapore in 1959. Although he had lived and worked in London since then, he was not a British citizen but held a Singapore passport. However, his son believes the British authorities should help. "He should be treated as a British citizen. "He has worked here and paid taxes, the British government should be helping." The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said it could not help as Mr Grewal was not a British national. But it said it had given the family a list of approved lawyers that could take up its case. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2013/20130606/ldh1.htm Blind murder of NRI cracked His millionaire brother owning a mega pizza chain in United Kingdom booked Mohit Khanna Tribune News Service Ludhiana, June 5 The city police today claimed to have cracked the blind murder of a 75-year-old NRI, Kulwant Singh Grewal, with the arrest of his 62-year-old millionaire younger brother Jaswant Singh Grewal in this connection today. Kulwant's mutilated body was found in a house located at Mehma Singh Wala village, near here, on May 30. It was a well-planned murder. After perpetrating the crime, the accused left the village and had stayed in Malaysia for nearly four weeks. The investigating officer said it was an alibi by Jawant Singh to make the police believe that he was somewhere else when the incident took place. According to the police, an old dispute between the two brothers led to Kulwant's murder. After migrating from Singapore, the Grewal family had settled in the United Kingdom. Jaswant Singh, his brother Charanjit Singh and the victim Kulwant Singh had a flourishing businesses in the UK. Jaswant's family owns a mega pizza chain in the UK. Insiders said Kulwant and Jaswant had been at loggerheads for the past 20 years. Earlier, they used to indulge in character assassination of each other's wives. They had become a laughing stock among their relatives in the UK and in the village. For the past four years, they had been fighting a legal battle over a piece of ancestral land. Kulwant had returned from the UK and started living in the house at Mehma Singh Wala village. Jaswant was fed up with repeated visits to India to attend hearing in the case. Jaswant claimed that the house was built by him and his brother Charanjit Singh. And Kulwant Singh, who had taken his share from the ancestral property long ago, and taken illegal possession of the piece of land. Owing to litigation, Kulwant had to spend some days in jail. After coming out of the jail, Kulwant had threatened Jaswant that he would send the latter and his wife to jail as well. On May 16 afternoon, Jaswant entered Kulwant's room and allegedly killed him with a sharp weapon. He dumped the weapon in the canal. On May 22, he flew to Malaysia thinking that when the villagers would come to know about the body, he would be abroad, thus no one would suspect his involvement in the murder. The villagers came to know about the body after 14 days, i.e. on May 30. Gurpreet Singh Sikand, ACP, Gill, said: "He cracked soon and confessed to killing his elder brother. Jaswant Singh has been arrested and efforts are on to locate the weapon used in the crime. Jaswant has allegedly confessed before the police that he had thrown the weapon into the Sidhwan Canal from Jassowal Bridge. Special divers have been deployed to locate the weapon." Arresting Jaswant was not an easy task as he is a UK citizen and enjoys a considerable political clout, the official said. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2013/20130611/ldh1.htm Wife's role under scanner Mohit Khanna Tribune News Service Ludhiana, June 10 In the Kulwant Singh murder case, the role of his wife Mukhtiar Kaur has come under the scanner after she appeared as a witness in the case. Kulwant Singh (75), an NRI, was allegedly killed by his younger brother Jaswant Singh (62) on May 16 at a house in Mehma Singh Wala village near Dehlon. Jaswant was recently arrested in this connection. Mukhtiar Kaur had told the police that her husband Kulwant Singh was apprehending a danger to his life from his brother Jaswant Singh, also an NRI, who owns a mega pizza chain in the UK. According to Satinder Singh, SHO of the Dehlon police station, Mukhtiar Kaur had reportedly told the police that she received a call from Kulwant a few days before the murder during which he had mentioned about a threat to his life from Jaswant. However, investigations revealed that Mukhtiar and Kulwant had strained relations and were living separately, a fact highlighted by the accused, Jaswant Singh, during the investigations. Investigating officer Swarn Singh said, "Jaswant told us that Kulwant and Mulhtiar Kaur were living separately and recently divorced each other. However, no evidence was found that the couple had divorced." Jaswant's two sons attended Kulwant Singh's bhog ceremony at a gurdwara in Mehma Singh Wala village yesterday. This had raised many an eyebrow in the village. An elderly resident said on condition of anonymity that the murder case would head for a compromise. "Mukhtiar Kaur, who stays in the UK, is not going to pursue the case. With the passage of time, the case will weaken and Jaswant will be let off. Both Mukhtiar and Kulwant had strained relations. It can be gauged from the fact that Kulwant's body kept lying dumped in a room for nearly 15 days and Mukhtiar did not bother to ask anyone about her husband's whereabouts," said the resident. Jaswant was today produced before a court, which remanded him in judicial custody for 14 days. Officer refutes charges Investigating officer refuted the allegations that the accused, Jaswant. was given a VIP treatment. He said Jaswant was not made to sit in an AC room.
