Delhi Police Arrest Indian Man for Murdering Australian Woman
Delhi police have arrested an Indian nurse accused of killing an Australian woman in Queensland in 2018. There was a 1 million Australian dollar reward for information leading to the nurse’s arrest. The accused will now be extradited to Australia as per the Australian government’s request.
Rajwinder Singh, 38, who is originally from Buttar Kalan, Punjab was working in Innisfail Town as a nursing assistant. In 2018, 24-year-old Toyah Cordingley was walking her dog at Queensland’s Wangetti Beach when she was killed by Singh. Two days later, he left Australia leaving behind his job, wife, and three children. A missing person’s report was filed for Cordingley on October 21, 2018 and her body was found the next morning at Wangetti Beach.
Earlier this month, Queensland Police offered a reward of 1 million Australian dollars for any information that would lead to Singh’s arrest. This is the largest reward offered by the Australian government for a homicide investigation. He was arrested by Delhi police on Friday. Back in March of last year, the Australian government had asked India to extradite Singh and the request was approved this month.
