UK: Sikh caught drinking over Skype, kills cousin
London: A Sikh stabbed his cousin in Britain during a heated row after being caught out while drinking by relatives in India over Skype, an inquest heard Friday.
Kanwarjeet Singh Batth, 24, was with his cousin Opinderpal Singh Randhawa at a celebration, in Slough town in Berkshire, for a friend`s upcoming wedding when they called their family back in India on the online video communication service, Daily Mail reported.
The inquest heard Batth thought his aunt photographed him drinking whiskey during the video conversation, which he thought would embarrass him and bring shame to his mother if she saw it.
Batth then argued with his cousin Randhawa, 23, over the picture`s ramifications and stabbed him. He fled the scene and remains at large since the knifing in December 2010.
Randhawa later died in hospital due to the wounds.
A post-mortem examination revealed that he died as a result of haemorrhage of an arterial blood vessel due to a stab wound.
The party guests initially told officers that Randhawa had injured himself after slipping on glass and the truth came out only later.
