Hunt for suspect in pregnant Indian
June 04, 2003 20:22 IST
British authorities are offering a reward of £10,000 for tracing a man wanted in connection with the murder of a woman of Indian origin, who was eight months pregnant when she was strangled to death.
Metropolitan Police has announced the reward for information leading to the arrest of Palwinder Singh Dhillon, 64, linked to the murder of Anita Gindha.
Dhillon, a Sikh with a long white beard, who occasionally wears glasses, comes from Punjab, but is believed to be in the United Kingdom.
Gindha, 27, was found dead on the sofa at her home in Manor Park, east London, by her husband Kashmir Ralh, a builder, on his return from work on February 19.
Police believe she was strangled with a ligature, possibly made of cloth, in the morning. Her 18-month-old son was with her at that time.
There was no evidence that the killing was racially or sexually motivated, the police said.
