Wrong body sent by India to Britain


A British businessman’s daughter believed to have already been killed in India says the body Punjab authorities have sent to Great Britain isn’t her dad’s.

Resort owner Ranjit Singh Power was seen at an airport on 8 May.

Taxi driver Sukhdev Singh was charged together with his murder after authorities said he’d admitted to killing Mr Power.

The hotelier’s daughter told BBC Hindi that DNA and dental records failed to fit the samples of the family.
Mr Power’s body was in poor condition and was discovered in a lake.

Authorities need the DNA sample of his mom in order to fit them, he explained, adding that their request had been carried by them to Mr Power’s family and additionally to the British embassy.

“The DNA of my grandma hasn’t been sent to India as requested, because police found out the body had not been my dad’s so it had been no longer essential,” Ms Power told BBC Hindi.

“Punjab police consider the body which was brought to the United Kingdom is now the duty of the coroner in Britain,” my grandmother added.
