Los Angeles, July 14, 2023 A.Gary Singh

Two NRI men have been sentenced to a total of over six years’ imprisonment for smuggling seven Indian migrants, including women and children, into the UK in the boots of two cars.

Palvinder Singh Phull, 48, was handed a three and half years’ sentence for assisting unlawful immigration and co-accused Harjit Singh Dhaliwal, 45, was jailed for three years and two months on the same charge at Canterbury Crown Court in south-east England.

The sentencing took place at Canterbury Crown Court, where the defendants both pleaded guilty to assisting unlawful immigration.

Chris Foster, Deputy Director of Criminal and Financial Investigations at the Home Office, said:

  • Today’s sentencing sends a clear message to those abusing our laws and borders: we will stop at nothing to bring to justice anyone attempting to smuggle people into the UK.
  • I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of my team, and their tireless efforts to tackle this type of crime. We will continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners to disrupt people smuggling gangs and make sure those who break our laws face the consequences.
