TWO men have been arrested in Austria today (Monday May 20) in connection with the murder of delivery driver Aurman Singh from Smethwick.

Mr Singh, aged 23, was killed in broad daylight in Shrewsbury on August 21, 2023, as he delivered parcels on Berwick Avenue, Coton Hill.

He was attacked by eight men who were armed with weapons including an axe, golf club and piece of wood.

Four men including one from Dudley – Arshdeep Singh, Manjot Singh, Shivdeep Singh and Jaddeep Singh (from Goodrich Mews in Dudley) – were found guilty on April 12 of his murder and were handed a 28-year prison sentence each.

A fifth man, Sukhmandeep Singh, was also found guilty at the trial of manslaughter and given a 10-year prison sentence.

Police have said there was no known motive for the attack on Aurman, although it was established that it was not a robbery.

Earlier this morning, two men, aged 23 and 25, were arrested in Austria on suspicion of murder and remain in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Bellamy, senior investigating officer, said: "This investigation has already resulted in five men found guilty for their part in Aurman’s death after they lay in wait for him during his delivery route, before they carried out their planned and calculated attack, resulting in his death.

"These arrests show our commitment to getting justice for Aurman's family, and how we have continued to work tirelessly to apprehend those involved in his death, and I’m grateful for the assistance of the Austrian authorities.”
