    Woman tried to kill boss

    Jailed 31/2 years after hiring undercover police to make hit

    By Tom Zytaruk, Surrey NowFebruary 21, 2012

    A Surrey woman who pleaded guilty to trying to have her former boss killed has been sentenced to 3½ years in prison.

    Amarjit Kaur Lally, 46, was led away in handcuffs on Monday afternoon after Judge Reg Harris sentenced her in Surrey Provincial Court, with the rebuke that there's nothing more despicable than killing for hire.

    Lally pleaded guilty to one count of counselling to commit an indictable offence for trying to have Gurcharan Singh Brar killed. Lally, the mother of two teens ages 18 and 16, was also charged with trying to have her 70-year-old mother-in-law killed, but pleaded not guilty to that offence. The Crown has stayed the charge.

    The court heard she'd taken out a $20,000 life-insurance policy on the elderly woman.

    Prosecutor Satinder Sidhu sought a prison term of five to seven years for Lally with respect to the Brar case. Defence lawyer Russ Chamberlain had argued for house arrest of two years less a day.

    The court heard that Lally met two men in the parking lot of the Great Canadian Superstore on Scott Road in North Delta in the spring of 2010 and arranged to run cocaine across the border for them if they killed Brar.

    She didn't realize they were under-cover cops.

    Lally wanted Brar killed because she'd owed him money and was afraid he'd tell her husband about the loan. Brar owned a Surrey furniture store where Lally used to work.

    When the undercover cops showed her a bogus photo of Brar with a bullet in his head, Harris noted, Lally replied, "Good, that's over with," and then allegedly went on to discuss the planned hit on her mother-in-law, which was to take place two months later.

    Harris found her crime was not impulsive but had been conceived over a long period of time.

    He denounced her lack of concern for her own children should she get caught, as well as her indifference to the impact Brar's murder would have had on his family.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
