Alleged killer to undergo mental evaluation

A FORKLIFT driver charged with the murder of a beautician whose decapitated body was found floating in Whampoa River has been sent for psychiatric assessment.

Gursharan Singh, 25, an Indian national, was charged last week with the murder of Jasvinder Kaur, 33, together with an unknown person at a Balestier Road premises between Dec 10 and 12.

Jasvinder’s body was wrapped in a trash bag when it was spotted floating in the waterway between McNair Road and St George’s Road.

Besides her still-missing head and hands, her arms had also been apparently mutilated.

Gursharan, who is on a Special Pass, was arrested last Wednesday at his workplace in Sims Avenue.

According to the police, he is a friend of the victim’s senior logistics coordinator husband, Harvinder Singh, 33, who skipped town half an hour before his wife’s body was found on Dec 12. Gursharan’s case will be mentioned again on Jan 17. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
