A court in Uttar Pradesh, India, has sentenced a British Sikh woman to death for killing her husband with the help of a friend seven years ago.

Ramandeep Kaur, 38, from Derby, was convicted of murdering her husband Sukhjit Singh, 34, while they were on holiday in India in 2016.

Her friend and accomplice Gurpreet was sentenced to life in prison and fined £2,960 at Shahjahanpur appeared in court on October 7.
Singh was sleeping with his sons Arjun and Aryan when he was killed by Kaur and Gurpreet, another district administration adviser, Shree Pal Verma, said .

Arjun told the court during the hearing that his mother crushed Sukhjeet to death with a pillow and then Gurpreet hit him on the head with a hammer. Gurpreet then took out a knife from his pocket and gave it to Kaur, who slit her husband’s throat, Verma said, quoting Arjun’s statement.

The prosecution claimed that Sukhjeet, his wife and sons Arjun Aryan visited his hometown in Shahjahanpur in August 2016. Gurpreet, from Punjab, accompanied them. Hours after her conviction, Kaur said she was being ‘trapped’ by her husband’s family members, a prison official said.
Kaur said she will appeal the death penalty, according to the official.
Shahjahanpur district jail superintendent Mijaji Lal said two inmates of the jail and a police constable have been deployed to keep an eye on Kaur.

When asked why she committed murder, Kaur replied that her husband wanted to sell all his assets and move to England, so his family members killed him and framed her, according to prison authorities.

“She said that she is innocent, and she will appeal against the capital punishment,” Lal said.

Reacting to the verdict, Singh’s mother, Vanshjeet Kaur, told reporters: “I feel relieved. My prayers were answered and I received what I expected from the court. I demand the death penalty for Ramandeep so that no child of his mother dies like this.”
