CPS statement on the sentencing of Anmol Chana
A 26-year old man who killed his mother and step-father has been sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 36 years. Anmol Chana was sentenced today (21 August 2020) at Birmingham Crown Court.
Michael Dinsey of the CPS said: “It’s incomprehensible to think of what went on in those last moments as he murdered his mother and step-father. The number of knife wounds that both victims suffered, the locations of the wounds, the use of combat knives, lack of injury to the defendant and incriminating messages found on his devices all proved that this was a calculated act.
"The case against him was overwhelming but despite this he persisted to trial with a defence of self-defence, trying to place the blame for his actions on the victims. The jury saw through these lies and convicted him accordingly.
“Today, he has been sentenced for this heinous crime. I want to offer my sincere condolences to the families of Jasbir Kaur and Rupinder Bassan for their heart breaking loss and thank them for their courage and resolve throughout the criminal proceedings.”
