Body of missing British Indian man found

An Indian origin man who went missing in the run-up to Christmas was found dead in the basement of a house in Britain’s West Midlands county.

Baljit Singh, 50, from Birmingham, was last seen December 23 when he left his home to collect a birthday cake for his son, the Daily Mirror reported on Thursday.

A 32-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were arrested on New Year’s Eve in connection with Singh’s disappearance.

The pair is now being questioned on the suspicion of his murder after his body was recovered from a basement in Rowley Regis.

They were initially arrested on suspicion of stealing the victim’s Range Rover.

“We believe Singh disappeared from Smethwick High Street in early-to-mid-afternoon on December 23 -- and that he’d had a drink in the Red Cow pub there before leaving in his grey 58-plate Range Rover,” the report quoted West Midlands Police detective Inspector Warren Hines as saying.
