Interpol, the world's largest international police organization, has issued a red corner notice against UK based NRI Baldev Singh Deol, 62, accused of kidnapping and murder of hotel owner Ranjit Singh Power in May 2015.
The victim was the owner of a four-star hotel, the Ramada Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands region of England.
Deol who was born in Kohar Kalan Village in Jalandhar was already declared a proclaimed offender and is in England. The Interpol notice was issued on the request of Jalandhar police, who sought that the murderer be arrested and extradited.
On his visit to India, the accused reportedly received Ranjit Power at the Amritsar airport. On the way home, Baldev, along with his relative Sukhdev, allegedly strangulated him and threw the body in the Bhakra canal near Anandpur Sahib. Ranjit Power body was recovered near a dam situated on the Pehowa-Ambala road, which is 20 km from the Ambala city on June 1. However, the DNA of the body did not match with that of the victim’s mother in tests conducted by the UK authorities.
Interpol is the world's largest international police organization, with 190 member countries. An Interpol notice known as the red corner notice is an international alert circulated to communicate information about crimes, criminals and threats from police in a member state (or an authorised international entity) to their counterparts around the world.
