Poonam Randhawa’s Killer Appeals Sentence


VANCOUVER – The murderer of Poonam Randhawa, who spent more than a dozen years evading capture, is now appealing his sentence, so he can apply for parole sooner.

In April, Ninderjit Singh was ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison, with no chance of parole for 16 years, reported CKNW. The 35-year old was seeking the minimum eligibility of ten years.

Randhawa, who made the mistake of befriending troubled Singh was killed in January of 1999. Singh was arrested in the summer of 2011 after hiding out in California where he’d changed his appearance and was using a fake name.

The former truck driver was initially charged with first degree murder. Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of second degree murder.
