Estranged husband charged with murder

The estranged husband of Geeta Aulakh, who was found dead with horrific head injuries and a severed hand after an attack in north-west London last month, was yesterday charged with her murder.

Harpreet Singh Aulakh, 31, will appear in court this week and is the second man to be charged with the killing. Mrs Aulakh, 28, was attacked with a sword-like weapon as she went to pick up her two sons Tejdeep, eight, and Karam, 10, after leaving work.
