Indian sentenced to three years in jail for selling bath salts

A 28-year-old Indian national has been sentenced to three years in prison by a US court for selling synthetic drugs commonly known as bath salts. Phulbir Singh now faces deportation after serving his sentencing. Singh was convicted after he pleaded guilty. ‘Singh said he was sorry, but the state blamed him for selling drugs that killed people besides having no legal status in the country,’ the local Muncie Free Press reported. According to the daily, representatives of the Sikh Temple in Indianapolis described Singh as hard working and helpful.


An Indian-origin nurse is on trial in the UK over charges that she attempted to ‘ poison’ her boss by spiking her coffee with mercury amalgam used in dental fillings.

Ravinder Kaur, 34, denies administering a poisonous or noxious substance with intent on March 16, 2012, three days after being given a warning about ‘poor behaviour’ at work. A jury at her ongoing trial at Blackfriars Crown Court in London was told that her boss, Laura Knowles, went to hospital and lost consciousness after returning to work following the alleged incident.

The 36-year-old said she also had bouts of dizziness, diarrhoea and vomiting.

Prosecutor Samantha Cohen told the court that Kaur had begun work as an assistant dental nurse at Shams Moopen Dental Practice in Shefford, Bedfordshire, in November 2011. She started out as ‘meticulous and professional’ but her behaviour soon changed with colleagues regarding her as inflexible and ‘not a good team player’.
