DPD Worker's Killers face deportation to India after being in UK Illegally f

they were in the UK illegally as their visas had expired.

It has been revealed that members of an armed gang who killed a DPD worker in a “public execution” were in the UK illegally.

Aurman Singh was delivering parcels when he was brutally murdered by masked men in a violent attack that lasted “seconds”.

In August 2023, the thugs chopped at his head and hacked off part of his ear with various weapons, including an axe.

The 23-year-old was so badly wounded that his brain was left ‘exposed’ by the time the thugs fled the scene in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

In April 2024, five men were jailed for more than 120 years in connection with Aurman’s killing.

In the years before the killing, the men moved to the UK after arriving from Punjab, India.

They settled in the Black Country and were working in the region at the time of Aurman’s death.

It has now been revealed that they were in the UK illegally as their visas had expired.

West Mercia Police confirmed that four members of the armed gang are believed to be “overstayers”. This includes Arshdeep Singh, Jagdeep Singh, Shivdeep Singh, and Manjot Singh, who were all jailed for life with minimum terms of 28 years.

They could now be deported and told to serve their life sentences in India.

A fifth killer, Sukhmandeep Singh, was in the UK legally.

He was jailed for 10 years after being acquitted of murder but unanimously convicted of manslaughter.

Prosecutors said he was the “inside man” after he tipped off his accomplices, handing over information on Aurman’s whereabouts.

A trial at Stafford Crown Court heard how the killers drove from the Black Country to Shrewsbury, where they “lay in wait” for the DPD worker.

Aurman’s colleague had pulled up in Berwick Avenue, leaving the van to deliver a parcel in the street.

He spotted the masked thugs rushing towards the van and called out to his colleague to “run”. But they caught up with Aurman, hacking him to death in the street and leaving him bleeding out.

Weapons wielded included an axe, golf club, wooden stave, metal bar, hockey stick, shovel, knife and cricket bat.

Judge Kristina Montgomery previously branded the murder a “very public execution”.

Judges returned the verdicts:

  • Arshdeep Singh, aged 24, of Shaw Road, Tipton, was unanimously convicted of murder.
  • Jagdeep Singh, aged 23, of Goodrich Mews, Dudley, was unanimously convicted of murder.
  • Shivdeep Singh, aged 27, of Greenfield Road, Smethwick, was unanimously convicted of murder.
  • Manjot Singh, aged 24, of Greenfield Road, Smethwick, was unanimously convicted of murder.
  • Sukhmandeep Singh, aged 25, Greenfield Road, Smethwick, was acquitted of murder but unanimously convicted of manslaughter.

The Home Secretary has a duty to make a deportation order for non-British or Irish citizens convicted of an offence in the UK and sentenced to at least 12 months’ imprisonment – unless certain exceptions apply.
