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 :

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.
