Killers jailed for 100 years


MURDERED: Sukhjinder Singh
MURDERED: Sukhjinder Singh

A GANG who murdered a rival have been jailed for 104 years between them, a court heard last week. Sukhjinder Singh, also known as Gurinder Singh, from Southall, was set upon on 30 July 2016 in an attack that included weapons such as knives, swords and base­ball bats. Singh was found with stab in­juries and died the next morning. A post-mortem confirmed his death was caused by multiple stab wounds. It is alleged the attack was due to a rivalry between Singh and a group of men from the Sikh com­munity. The feud had apparently existed from 2013, although it es­calated in 2016 when Singh alleg­edly boasted about an assault he had committed on Kuldeep Dhillon, one of the men convict­ed of manslaughter, at a religious festival in Birmingham. Sentencing, Judge Christopher Moss QC said: “The nature of weapons used and ferocity of the attack, it is obvious you intended to kill”. Amandeep Sandhu, 30, and Ravinder Singh-Shergil, 31, were both found guilty of the 33- year-old Sikh’s murder earlier this month. Sandhu was jailed for 26 and a half years for murder as well as a further five years to be served for assisting an offender. Singh-Sher­gil has been jailed for 26 years and nine months. Two other men, Visha Soba, 30, and Dhillon, 26, were found guilty of Singh’s manslaughter. Soba was jailed to 16 years im­prisonment and a further five years for assisting an offender. Dhillon was sentenced to 16 years imprisonment for man­slaughter and a further three years for witness intimidation. A fifth man, Palwinder Multa­ni, 37, pleaded guilty last Novem­ber to manslaughter and assist­ing an offender. He was jailed for five years and nine months. The Metropolitan Police be­lieve more people were involved and are seeking information.
