A 62-year-old Indian origin man wanted in India on suspicion
of kidnapping and murdering his friend and
business partner in Punjab last year has been traced to
his home in Britain. Baldev Singh Deol, who
was seen at his home in Wolverhampton in the
West Midlands region of England, cannot
be arrested because extradition papers are yet
to be processed by Indian authorities, UK police said. Deol
is wanted by Punjab Police in connection with the murder
of 54-year-old Ranjit Singh Power, an Indian-origin hotelier
from Wolverhampton who went missing on a visit to India
in May 2015.
While his body is yet to be recovered, his disappearance
is being treated as murder. “This is an Indian police
investigation. As yet, West Midlands Police haven’t received
any formal request for extradition proceedings from the
Indian authorities.
