Seven Kings man guilty of hand chop murder
A SEVEN Kings man has been found guilty of murdering a woman who was hacked to death as she walked to collect her two sons from a childminder.
Jaswant Dhillon, also known as Taljit Singh, was hired by the husband of murdered Geeta Aulakh, 28, to carry out the killing.
He had originally gone to police claiming to be an unwitting participant who thought he was collecting a debt.
Thirty-year-old Dhillon, of High Road, Sher Singh and Geeta’s husband Harpreet Aulakh were all unanimously found guilty today by a jury at the Old Bailey.
The assault was so ferocious that Geeta’s right hand was severed as she desperately tried to protect her head and face.
