Nurse with million dollars bounty arrested in Delhi for murder

The Delhi Police arrested a 38-year-old nurse Rajwinder Singh with a million-dollar bounty on his head for murder in Australia on Friday.

He had fled to India two days after allegedly murdering a 24-year-old woman on a beach in Queensland in 2018, reported India Today.

As per the report, Toyah Cordingley was walking her dog on Wangetti Beach in Queensland when she was killed on 21 October 2018. The main suspect in the case, Rajwinder Singh, fled the country two days after Cordingley was killed, leaving behind his job, wife and three children in Australia.

Three weeks ago, the Queensland Police announced a one million Australian dollars (USD 633,000) bounty for any information on Rajwinder Singh, who hails from Buttar Kalan in Amritsar, Punjab. This was the largest bounty ever offered by the Queensland Police.

“We know that Singh departed Cairns on October 22, the day after Toyah was murdered, and then flew from Sydney to India on the 23rd. His arrival in India has been confirmed,” a Queensland Police officer was quoted as saying by PTI on 3 November.
