Singapore: A Singapore court has held an Indian national guilty of killing his wife, whose headless body was found in Whampoa river in December 2013, media reports said on Wednesday.
Thirty-three-year-old Jasvinder Kaur`s corpse was found wrapped in black trash bags, with the legs exposed and hands severed at the wrists.
According to a report in the Straits Times, her husband Harvinder Singh was reportedly upset that she making a long-distance call to someone unknown to him.
He reportedly hit her during a fight and left her lying on the bed.
Upon realising that she was dead, Harvinder allegedly called his friend Gursharan Singh to help him disposing off the body.
Unaware of the incident, Gursharan grew suspicious at the weight of the bag he was carrying and demanded an explanation.
Even after he became aware of the fight, he reportedly decided to help Harvinder dispose off the body.
Gursharan, 27, was jailed for 30 months in April this year for helping Harvinder, who is still absconding.
Kaur used to work as a beautician. Her employer told investigators that after she failed to turn up for work next day, her husband called to say she was returning to India.
Harvinder, a senior logistics coordinator, fled the next morning to Malaysia and then to India. Authorities are yet to trace Harvinder, who is now on Interpol`s wanted list.
