Brit mum on death row after ‘drugging husband’s curry and then slashing throat’

A British mum is on death row in India after drugging her husband’s curry before murdering him along with a lover.

Ramandeep Kaur Mann secretly added sleeping pills into her husband’s biriyani before waiting for Sukhjit Singh, 34, to fall asleep before slashing his throat.

A court heard the 38-year-old from Derby carried out the brutal murder in a bid to cash in on her husband’s £2million life insurance policy,

The murder took place on September 2, 2016 while the couple were staying at a holiday house in India owned by Sukhjit Singh’s mother.

Mann has since been found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging.

The murder was witnessed by Mann’s nine-year-old son who described waking to see his mother attempting to smother his sleeping father with a pillow.
