Four arrested over India murder


Rulda Singh shot dead outside home in July last year

WEST Midlands Police have arrested four men on suspicion of the murder, in India, of Rulda Singh.

Mr Singh, a high profile public figure, died a fortnight after being shot outside his home in Patiala in July last year.

Two men in the Punjab have already been charged in connection with his killing. Both are reported to have links to a Sikh extremist group.

The men, who were detained earlier this morning at their home addresses, are from Smethwick, Wolverhampton and two from Coventry. All are British subjects and aged between 27 and 36.

Police said the investigation is being conducted by officers from the Counter Terrorism Unit and Force CID.

Detectives travelled to India to conduct initial investigations in April. Det Supt George Tracey from the CTU said: “We have been working closely with the Indian authorities on this matter.

“The investigation into the death of Mr Singh is complex and ongoing both here and in the Punjab.”
