NRI Sikh family in London 'ran operation' to
defraud Royal Mail of 70 million pounds

Los Angeles, August 17, 2023 A.Gary Singh

A family that deprived Royal Mail of £70 million over a decade owned a “multi-million-pound mansion” and bought properties “like Donald Trump,” a court has heard.

Parmjeet Sandhu, 56, and his nephew Balginder Sandhu, 46, were part of a scheme to under-declare mail posted through a network of logistics companies in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, pocketing millions of pounds, it is alleged.

They worked under Parmjeet Sandhu’s brother, owner of Packpost International Ltd and “architect” of the fraud, Narinder Sandhu, who has already pleaded guilty, prosecutors told a jury.

Parmjeet, director of sister companies Tiger International Logistics Ltd and Worldwide Transport Express Ltd, and his nephew, Balginder, owner of Global Express Worldwide Ltd, took part, it is alleged, as did a third man, Lakhwinder Sekhon, 42, who is not a family relation.

The trio appeared for trial at Southwark Crown Court, central London, on Wednesday charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation between 2008 and 2017.

Prosecutor Ellis Sareen said Narinder Sandhu lived with his family at Hadley Grange, a “multi-million-pound mansion” near Beaconsfield, Bucks.

“Narinder Sandhu and his wife Jaswinder had a multi-million-pound home, a Bentley, a Rolls Royce and a pool house,” Mr Sareen continued.

Sandhu’s declared taxable income was about £1 million per year towards the end of the period that the fraud was running, the prosecutor said.

His brother Parmjeet did not become as wealthy, but still made “a lot of money,” Mr Sareen added.
