Driver charged with murdering friend’s wife

A FORKLIFT-DRIVER has been charged with the murder of Jasvinder Kaur, 33, whose decapitated body was found floating in Whampoa River on Dec 12.

The accused was identified in court as 25-year-old Gursharan Singh, whom police had previously said was a friend of Jasvinder’s husband Harvinder Singh. All three are Indian nationals.

Gursharan is accused of causing the death of Jasvinder at a residence in Balestier Road, together with an “unknown male person” between Dec 10 and Dec 12.

The police on Thursday had also said that they were now looking for Harvinder to help in their investigations.

The husband had left Singapore 30 minutes before Jasvinder’s body was found – without her head and hands – and reported to the police by a jogger and cleaner at about 7.30am last week.

The senior logistics coordinator left by bus through Woodlands Checkpoint, but it is not known if he is in Malaysia. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
