India police sent ‘wrong body’ to UK
The daughter of a British businessman thought to have been murdered in India says the body Punjab police have sent to the UK is not her father’s.
Hotel owner Ranjit Singh Power, from Wolverhampton, 54, was last seen at an airport in Amritsar, Punjab, on 8 May.
Taxi driver Sukhdev Singh was charged with his murder after police said he had confessed to killing Mr Power.
The hotelier’s daughter told BBC Hindi that dental records and DNA of the body did not match the family’s samples.
Mr Power’s body was found in a lake and was in poor condition. A family friend who identified the body in June had said it was the right height and wore “exactly the same bangle” as the businessman.
