Interpol has issued a Red- Corner notice against UK-based NRI Baldev Singh Deol wanted in the kidnapping and murder of hotelier Ranjit Singh Power.
The deceased’s family has emailed the notice to the city police.
The development will help the police in extraditing the accused once he is traced.
AS Power, ADCP, said a family member of the deceased had also telephonically informed him about the notice.
A local court recently framed murder charges against the accused Sukhdev Singh, a relative of main accused Deol.
Ranjit Power was received at the Amritsar airport by Baldev Singh on May 8, 2015. On the way home, Baldev, along with his accomplice Sukhdev, allegedly strangulated him and threw the body in the Bhakra canal near Anandpur Sahib.
The NRI’s body was recovered from near a dam situated on the Pehowa-Ambala road, 20 km from the Ambala city on June 1.
Power owned the four-star Ramada Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands region of England.
