UK wife killer to be repatriated to India
August 27, 2018 4:10 pm
An Indian man currently serving a jail term in the UK for murdering his wife will be repatriated to India, a top prison official has told BBC Punjabi.
Harpreet Aulakh was sentenced to a minimum of 28 years in a UK prison in December 2010 for ordering the murder of Geeta Aulakh.
Mother-of-two Ms Aulakh, 28, had her hand severed with a machete during the attack in Greenford, London, in 2009.
Aulakh ordered the murder after she asked for a divorce.
IPS Sahota, a top prison official in the northern Indian state of Punjab, told BBC Punjabi’s Arvind Chhabra that Aulakh would arrive in India on Tuesday and would be sent to a prison in Amritsar district.
“All arrangements are in place. According to the plan, the UK authorities will bring him to Delhi from where a team of Punjab police officers will bring him to Amritsar,” Mr Sahota said.
