Three NRIs, who had pleaded guilty to conspiracy for a murder of Jaskarnjit Singh Sanghera were sentenced to jail for ten, eight and five years respectively :

  • Balwinder Kaur Sanghera, 40, wife of Jaskarnjit Singh Sanghera of Milton Street, Walsall, was sentenced to ten years in prison.
  • Amrita Sanghera, 20, daughter of Jaskarnjit Singh Sanghera received an eight year jail sentence
  • Inderpal Singh Dail, 24, of Dudley Road East, Tividale, Dudley, West Midlands, received a five year jail sentence.

On the night of November O2, 2005, Jaskarnjit Singh Sanghera, 42, went to bed as usual with his wife, Balwinder Sanghera, at their home in Coventry. At about 2.20 am his front door was smashed in and a knifeman burst into the bedroom before stabbing him 25 times .Jaskarnjit suffered serious injuries, but survived. It was the second time within months he had been stabbed.

Jaskarnjit was left partially paralysed when he was stabbed 27 times in the second and most serious attack. It was masterminded by his spouse and daughter Amrita

Balwinder Sanghera told the police that she suspected that the attacks could have been linked to a land dispute in India, and even suggested that it was connected to a woman Sanghera had an affair with a long time ago.

The Coventry police became suspicious when they found Balwinder had a debts of about pounds 50,000 that her husband knew nothing about, and had taken out a life insurance policy in his name. She also took out a loan of pounds 8,000 in the weeks before the attempt on his life in November. The police believe that the money was used to pay a hitman. After a huge inquiry, the police charged Balwinder with organising the attacks.
