Warwickshire Police have described the man who killed his ex-wife in her Lillington home as a 'shocking, cold-blooded murderer, motivated by anger and greed'.

Jasbinder Gahir was given a life sentence for the murder of Balvinder Gahir (known as Bally), with a minimum of 28 years before being considered for release.

Their youngest son, Rohan Gahir (23) of the same address, was jailed for three-and-a-half years after being cleared of being involved in the killing but found guilty of perverting the course of justice after driving his father from the scene.

Speaking about the outcome, senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Corfield, said: “This was a shocking, cold-blooded murder, motivated by anger and greed.

"Our investigation revealed Jasbinder Gahir to be a manipulative, materialistic man capable of deceiving those closest to him over many years. I have no doubt that Bally’s recent enforcement of the financial order against him was the motivation behind her murder.

“Jasbinder has never shown any remorse for killing Balvinder but he continued to weave a web of lies in the courtroom. The jury have rejected his account and we welcome this verdict.

“I would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard on this case to seek justice for Bally.

“Bally’s family are utterly devastated by her loss but I must pay tribute to the incredible dignity and courage they have shown throughout this investigation and trial. I hope this justice outcome can offer some comfort.”
