Jalandhar: The case of an Indo-Canadian woman paying supari to eliminate her husband in India to cash insurance policy is still in limelight , while a similar another case has resurfaced.
Kin of a Jalandhar area Indo-Canadian woman who recently died during visit to Punjab have levelled allegations against her non-resident-Indian (NRI) husband and in-laws for conspiring to kill her to pocket hefty insurance claim money. The woman had allegedly died under mysterious circumstances a few days ago.
The family had filed a written complaint before the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) to seek action against the alleged accused. Harmel Singh, a resident of Cheema Kalan village near Phillaur, told media persons that their daughter Amandeep Kaur ( now deceased) had married Sukhdev Singh (a resident of Canada) of Raiwal village near Shahkot in 2010.
The family alleged that last month, Amandeep along with her husband Sukhdev, father-in-law Charan Singh, mother-in-law Surinder Kaur and sister-in-law Jasvir Kaur had come to India to attend a marriage and was staying at her in-laws house.
The family alleged that Amandeep Kaur was admitted twice to a hospital at Lohia Khas, where she died under mysterious circumstances. After her death, they had come to know that before flying to India, the victim’s husband had taken an insurance policy of Amandeep in Canada and to encash the policy, worth several crores, the girl’s father alleged that her husband, in connivance with her parents, conspired to kill her.
DSP Mukhwinder Singh is probing the matter.
