Uxbridge Gazette - - NEWS - By Alexan­der Ballinger alexan­der.ballinger@trin­i­tymir­

AN out­pour­ing of grief from the com­mu­nity has fol­lowed the news that Pardeep Kaur from Hayes, who was found dead on Satur­day, may have been mur­dered.

The 30-year-old had been miss­ing for six days when her body was found by de­tec­tives on waste ground un­der­neath the Har­ling­ton High Street fly­over at around 4.30pm.

Ms Kaur was last seen at around 4pm on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 16 in Har­ling­ton High Street, be­fore she was re­ported miss­ing when she did not turn up for work as a house­keeper at a ho­tel at Heathrow.

The Sikh Wel­fare and Aware­ness Team, based in Hayes, posted on Face­book on Sun­day: “We are deeply sad­dened to hear of the news emerg­ing of Pardeep Kaur. God bless her soul.”

Oth­ers have also posted on so­cial me­dia in the wake of the tragedy.

Sarah Ha­ley said: “So sad. My heart goes out to all those af­fected.”

Com­ment­ing on a Sikh Aware­ness So­ci­ety post, Babs Kaur said: “God bless her. RIP. My thoughts and prayers go out to her fam­ily and friends.”

Kuldip Matha­roo said: “How sad and tragic.

“Her life should not have ended so soon.”

Two men, aged 30 and 31, were ar­rested on Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 19 in con­nec­tion with the vic­tim’s dis­ap­pear­ance and have since been re­leased with no fur­ther ac­tion.

No new ar­rests have been made but the Metropoli­tan Po­lice say Ms Kaur’s death is being treated as sus­pi­cion and a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der way.

Ms Kaur’s next of kin have been in­formed.

A post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion is due to take place in due course.

DCI Mark Law­son, from Ma­jor Crime Com­mand, said: “At this early stage of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion I am ap­peal­ing to any wit­nesses in the Carl­ton Av­enue and Bed­well Gar­dens area who may have been driv­ing to work to come for­ward as they may have seen Pardeep walk­ing to work at about 6.30am on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 17.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to call the in­ci­dent room on 0208 358 0200 or call Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800555111.
