A British woman has been given a death sentence for killing her husband in connection with £2 million.


Ramandeep Kaur Mann, a British national, has been sentenced to death by hanging in India for her involvement in her husband’s murder.

According to Mirror UK, Kaur Mann was convicted by an Indian court for the killing of Sukhjeet Singh. The court in India heard how Kaur Mann poisoned her family and subsequently slit her husband’s throat on September 2, 2016, with the intention of inheriting £2 million from his life insurance.

Her accomplice, Gurpreet Singh, was sentenced to life in prison. The testimony of the victim’s nine-year-old son played a crucial role in securing the conviction against Kaur Mann.

Reports indicate that she executed her plan to murder her husband upon returning from a month-long family vacation to Sukhjeet’s hometown of Shahjahanpur, where she had been living with him for 11 years.

She poisoned a meal consumed by several family members, but her eldest son did not partake. On the morning of September 2, 2016, Sukhjeet’s lifeless body was discovered on the first floor of the house, where he was asleep with his family. Sukhjeet’s mother, Vansh Kaur, was asleep on the ground floor of the house.

Both Kaur Mann and Gurpreet were charged with murder, and during the police investigation, it was revealed that the two perpetrators were involved in a relationship.

The court found them guilty of murder and the offense of criminal acts carried out by a group with a common intention. A judge, on Saturday, October 14, described the case as “the rarest of rare,” stating, “Not only was Sukhjeet murdered, but the remaining years of an elderly widow were destroyed, and the childhood and youth of two minor children were wiped out. The children have lost the happiness they had when their father was alive.”

Sukhjeet’s mother, speaking to reporters outside the court, expressed relief and satisfaction that her son’s killer had received the death penalty. She said, “I feel relieved. My prayers were answered, and I received the verdict I was expecting from the court. I was demanding capital punishment for Ramandeep so that no mother’s child suffers a similar fate.”
