Tarikhot Singh pleads guilty to burying Jasmeen Kaur alive in Australia
A jealous ex-lover who kidnapped his ex-girlfriend and buried her alive in an abhorrent act of cruelty faces life behind bars.
Jasmeen Kaur, 21, was abducted from the South Australian nursing home where she worked in North Plympton, Adelaide, in March 2021.
Tarikjot Singh, 21, pleaded guilty to the murder and on Wednesday during sentencing presentations in the High Court, prosecutor Carman Matteo SC said. the murder was an act of “revenge” and “involved an uncommon level of cruelty.”
“Ms. Kaur was buried alive and she was buried while she was conscious,” he said.
‘(She) had inhaled and swallowed dirt that had reached her lower esophagus. She was actively breathing and swallowing dirt while she was alive. That was how she died.
