Four Indians get 122 years in jail for brutal murder of 23-year-old delivery driver in UK

PTC Web Desk: In the UK, four Indian-origin men have been sentenced to a total of 122 years in prison for the murder of Aurman Singh, a 23-year-old delivery driver of Indian origin. The brutal attack, which occurred in August last year in Shrewsbury, western England, involved weapons such as an axe, a golf club, a wooden stave, a metal club, a hockey stick, a shovel, a cricket bat, and a knife. The four men—Arshdeep Singh and Jagdeep Singh from Dudley, and Shivdeep Singh and Manjot Singh from Smethwick—were sentenced to serve a minimum of 28 years each in prison.

A fifth man, Sukhmandeep Singh from Peterborough, was also implicated in the crime. He provided information about Aurman Singh's deliveries on the day he was killed and received a 10-year sentence for manslaughter. During the trial, no clear motive was established for the attack, which left Aurman Singh dead at the side of the road.


Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Mark Bellamy of West Mercia Police, who led the investigation, expressed satisfaction with the significant sentences imposed on the perpetrators. He stated that these individuals are dangerous and the sentences will prevent them from harming the public further. DCI Bellamy extended his condolences to Aurman Singh's family and said the investigation served as a message to deter violent crime in towns and cities.

At the Stafford Crown Court, Judge Kristina Montgomery KC described the attack as one of "horrifying brutality" and "a very public execution." She noted that Aurman Singh was struck with such force that his skull was fractured, and he sustained severe injuries from various weapons, including being stabbed in the back with such force that it cut through one of his ribs. The young driver died at the scene.

Aurman Singh's family issued a statement expressing the profound impact of his loss on their lives. They noted the pain of a mother losing her son and a sister growing up without her brother, emphasising the enduring emotional toll the tragedy has taken. The family hopes that their experience serves as a warning to others and prevents similar tragedies.

They expressed gratitude to the police for their diligent investigation and support during their difficult time. The family also acknowledged the irreplaceable loss and the challenges they face in coping with their new reality.

The sentences followed a six-week trial at the Stafford Crown Court, where the five men were found guilty last month.
