Punjabi Man Imprisoned for Attacking Son-in-law with Meat Cleaver in UK
A Punjabi man has been sentenced to over eight years in a UK prison for attacking his son-in-law with a meat cleaver. While the reason for the attack is unclear, it has been reported that the Punjabi man had reluctantly returned to the UK from an extended trip to India and was angry.
The incident took place in April last year at Cornwall Road in Handsworth where the defendant, Bhajan Singh, lived with his daughter, her husband, and their two children. One day, under the influence of alcohol, Singh swung a meat cleaver at his 30-year-old son-in-law’s neck from the back. The victim raised his left hand to defend himself which caused his hand to bleed. He also damaged his middle finger which required two surgeries.
The son-in-law managed to escape to the neighbor’s house and the police were called, leading to Singh’s arrest.
