Dumped boyfriend, 57, fitted a tracking device and microphone to his ex-girlfriend’s car so he could ‘check out anyone she went out with’ and ‘shout abuse at her’, court hears
- Kulwinder Singh was dumped by his partner in 2018, and became obsessive
- He planted a GPS tracker to her car, and stalked and defamed her in public
- Singh called her family in India and threatened to kill her future boyfriends
- The 57-year-old pleaded guilty to harassment at Birmingham Crown Court
A vindictive stalker fitted a tracking device to his ex-partner’s car after she dumped him and ‘threatened to kill her future boyfriends’, a court heard today.
Kulwinder Singh pleaded guilty to harassment after Birmingham Crown Court heard how the 57-year-old obsessively started following his former lover.
The victim broke off their relationship two years ago, after Singh, of Vincent Drive in Ladywood threatened to ‘install cameras in the house’.
After she dumped him, though, he told his ex that he would ‘check out anyone she went out with to make sure he was good enough for her’, a court heard.
Planting a secret GPS tracker and microphone to her car, Singh followed the victim to an Ikea in Wednesbury and screamed: ‘She ruined my life so I will ruin hers!’

On another occasion, Singh ‘appeared out of nowhere’ next to the woman while she was in the Post Office, and yelled at passersby: ‘She’s a w****!’
Shockingly, he confessed to the victim later on the telephone how he knew she would be there because he had fitted the tracking device to her vehicle.
The 57-year-old also contacted his former partner’s relatives in India, and threatened to kill any man that she went out with.
Singh had also made photocopies of her driving licence and passport.
Today at Birmingham Crown Court, Singh admitted harassing his former partner.
He was given a deferred sentence, as the judge said he would not go to prison provided her left her alone for the next four months.
Ben Williams, prosecuting, said the victim ‘took her car to a garage and they took it apart and found that a tracker had been fitted professionally into the panels’.
They also discovered a microphone hidden in the sun visor, he added.
Mr Williams said: ‘Worryingly, the way the tracker was fitted meant it had affected the air bag in such a way it might not work in a collision.’
Olivia Whitworth, defending, said the last incident had been more than a year ago and there had been no further occurrences, despite the defendant being on bail.
Ms Whitworth said: ‘He is anxious for this matter to be resolved.’
Judge Gosling gave Singh a deferred sentence until June 12, but warned him that he might still face a prison term for his offences.
The judge told Singh: ‘What you did was very very serious and I’m sure you understand you could have gone to prison and you might still go to prison.
‘But I won’t send you to prison as long as you keep away from the victim. You must have no contact, directly or indirectly with her, or by getting someone else to do so.
‘As long as you do this, you will not be sent to prison in June and I will decide what to do with you and if I need to impose a restraining order.’
