Kurlwinder Singh arrest murder wife Parwinder Kaur Sydney

Parwinder Kaur, 32, died in December 2013

The husband of a Sydney woman who died after being doused in petrol and set alight nearly four years ago has been arrested.

Parwinder Kaur, 32, died in December 2013 after suffering full thickness burns to 90 per cent of her body at a Rouse Hill house, in Sydney’s north-west.

Police arrested the woman’s 37-year-old husband, Kurlwinder Singh, on Wednesday morning at his Rouse Hill home and he’s now being questioned.

A 2015 inquest into the woman’s death heard the couple had spoken about divorce and Ms Kaur’s husband had, on several occasions, threatened to kill his wife.

Shortly after the fight, Ms Kaur telephoned triple-zero. Her call was then suddenly terminated.

Minutes later, Ms Kaur’s neighbours reported hearing a ‘blood-curdling scream’.

They emerged from their homes in the western Sydney suburb of Rouse Hill to see what one described as a ‘ball of fire’. 

The husband was seen running after her and patting her as if to put out the flames. 

Neighbours reported hearing Mr Singh running after his wife yelling: ‘Fire, fire. I didn’t do it, I’m a good man’. 

After Ms Kaur died from her injuries, her husband reportedly told police she had doused herself with lawnmower fuel and set herself alight, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.  

Mr Singh is at Castle Hill Police Station and police will address media later in the morning.
