Murder in Oz shocks Indian community


Compiled by BENJAMIN LEE, C. ARUNO and R. ARAVINTHAN

THE Indian community in Australia is shell-shocked over gruesome details that emerged from the murder trial of a man said to have killed a nursing student, Makkal Osai reported.

Tarikjot Singh was alleged to have abducted the then 21-year-old Jasmeen Kaur and drove 650km into the Australian wilderness, where he bound her up with cables and buried her alive in a shallow grave.

He had also made some cuts to her neck during the horrifying act in 2021.

Jasmeen was studying nursing in Adelaide, South Australia, at the time.

She had lodged a report earlier that year that her former boyfriend had been stalking her.

Prior to the court case, Tarikjot had initially claimed that Jasmeen had committed suicide and he had just buried her body.

Earlier this year, he finally admitted to killing her – as the evidence mounted against him, including being captured on CCTV buying gloves, cables and a hoe – and led authorities to where the body was buried.
