Strike Force Whyalla was established in December 2013 by detectives attached to The Hills Local Area Command, assisted by State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, to investigate the circumstances surrounding Parwinder’s death.

Following extensive inquiries, police attended a home in Rouse Hill just before 7am on 1 November 2017, and arrested a now 37-year-old man.

The Rouse Hill man was taken to Castle Hill Police Station where he was charged with murder.

He was refused bail and is due to appear at Parramatta Local Court on 1 November 2017.

Commander of The Hills Local Area Command, Superintendent Robert Critchlow said detectives have worked tirelessly to investigate what happened to Parwinder.

“The death of Mrs Kaur was tragic, and for nearly four years detectives have been tenacious in this investigation and also had the benefit of assistance from media outlets and the community, which led to an arrest.” Supt Critchlow said.
