In­dia po­lice sent ‘wrong body’ to UK

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

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.
