Jassi Sidhu’s murder occurred back in 2000, the trial is now coming nearly two decades after her death.
Badesha and Sidhu are charged with supplying money to contract killers to plot Jassi Sidhu’s slaying.
Jassi Sihdu was found with her throat slit in a canal. Her husband, Mithu Singh Sihdu was badly beaten but survived the attack.
In 2012, Badesha and Sidhu were taken into custody. The B.C. Supreme Court ruled in favor to have the pair extradited in 2014. But that ruling fell through and appeal court decided to keep the finding.
Badesha and Sidhu tried to avoid extradition to India. In December 2017, they were pulled of a plane leaving for Toronto at the last minute.
In connection to the case, several others have been convicted in India for charges including murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to murder.
