An Indian NRI has been sentenced for life imprisonment for murdering his wife in New Zealand

A 29-year-old Indian NRI, Mandeep Singh has been sentenced for life imprisonment for murdering his 22-year-old wife Parmita Rani in New Zealand earlier this year. 

The Auckland High Court sentenced Mandeep for a parole period of a minimum of 13 years, after which he will be deported, back to India. Rani and Mandeep were reportedly having marital issues; the convict believed that his wife was having extra-marital relationship with her friend Parminder Sandhu. 

The couple was married, since 2013 and Mandeep followed Rani to New Zealand as a dependent. They were in the process of renewing their visa permits, when the gruesome incident took place.
