A Court in England has been informed about a gruesome murder of a newly married Indian bride by her gay husband who wanted to hide his sexuality.
Prosecutor Deborah Gould informed the Wolverhampton Crown Court on Wednesday that gay Indian bank worker Jasvir Ram Ginday attacked and strangled his wife Varkha Rani with a metal pipe from a vacuum cleaner following which he burnt her body in the garden incinerator.
The Court was also told how Ginday bragged to his neighbour about setting “general rubbish of his home” on fire.
When the police got to the scene and lifted the lid of the metal incinerator, they saw the remains of a skull.
Ginday and his 24-year-old wife Rani got married in India in March 2013 and moved to UK last August after being granted a visa.
Ginday however was gay and have been in relationships with men since 2008
Ms Gould informed the Court that the hard drive from Ginday’s computer showed internet searches and information on incinerators just a month before Rani’s death on September 12.
Ginday – a resident of Walsall in West Midlands was arrested in September after police discovered the unrecognizable remains of his wife.
Ms Gould told jurors at Wolverhampton Crown Court “Despite his sexual orientation, in October 2012 the defendant and his mother travelled to India to find him a wife. He met Varkha Rani, shortly before his return to the UK through the intervention of a match-maker, who was known to both families. No doubt to Varkha’s family he appeared to be a perfect match for their intelligent, well-educated, and attractive young daughter.”
Ginday had initially told the police his wife had walked out on him after ‘using’ him to gain entry to the UK.
Police however found that Ginday had bought large quantities of petrol on September 12.
Ginday was hoping that Rani’s remains would be taken away by the garbage collectors. Instead the police got their hands on it.
When the police questioned him about what was burning in his garden, Ginday allegedly told officers it was ‘ashes’ before correcting himself and saying ‘no, I mean leaves’.
Rani’s father, Surjit Singh told the jury he was completely unaware of his son-in-law’s sexual orientations.
Ginday denies a charge of murder but has admitted manslaughter and a further charge of perverting the course of justice by lying to police.
