Santokh Singh: Life term for son who killed dad with cricket bat

Phillip Badwal, 25, had denied murdering his father but changed his plea on Wednesday

A man who beat his father to death with a cricket bat and a metal dog bowl has been jailed for a minimum of 20 years.

Santokh Singh, 59, known as Charlie, was attacked by his son Phillip Badwal, 25, at their home in Airedale Road, Bradford, on 30 November 2020.

Bradford Crown Court heard Badwal, who was on bail at the time of the attack, inflicted "unspeakable violence" after an argument with his father.

He initially denied murder but changed his plea on day two of his trial.

Mr Singh, who had worked as a publican and an engineer, suffered extensive skull fractures, fractures to his face and nose and a broken leg during the 20-minute attack at the family home.

Judge Jonathan Rose described the murder as "a savage, brutal and prolonged attack on a defenceless and vulnerable man".

The court heard Badwal had previously subjected his father to threats and violence and had forced him to go out and buy drugs for him as well as pay off drug debts.

The day before the attack Mr Singh had gone with relatives to see a new flat, having said how unhappy he had been in the family home.

After the attack Badwal called drug dealer numbers instead of emergency services.

He also tried to cover his tracks by throwing the cricket bat over a neighbour's fence, disposing of his phone and telling police his father had come home that morning badly injured.

Barrister Peter Moulson QC said Badwal's addiction to drugs was the root cause of the offending and his client could not recall what had happened in the house.

At the time of the attack, he was on bail for his involvement in multiple street robberies and was jailed for five years at Leicester Crown Court in May.

Speaking after the hearing Det Supt Tony Nicholson, said: "Badwal unleashed a serious and sustained assault on his father in the house that they shared, leaving him with injuries which were to sadly prove fatal.

"Rather than seek urgent medical attention for his seriously injured father, Badwal contacted drug dealers before finally ringing the emergency services, who, despite their best efforts, were unable to revive Mr Singh."

Tragic bro. No mention of the mother.

Off topic but why are Punjabis doing this. I saw someone named Jessicapreet Kaur. Like, what the hell. That's so retarded.

I don't know why Sikhs these days have to keep these names when we have so many beautiful  names to pick from.

How did Amerjit become Bobby! I used to think Bollywood gave Sikh/Punjabi characters funny names to make a joke out of the quom but then I met real Shampy's, Happy's and Pinky's.

I don't know. Bobby Singh is the only one I approve of so far.

I love me some Bobby Singh but I agree. 

Bobby, Johnny and a few others have been used for decades by Panjabis as a nickname, even when their Sikh name is unrelated !

I'm trying to get land asap with clean ground water. I support extended family though so it's hard for me to do much fast. I'm really gonna have to get the cheapest piece. Live on it to save rent in a cheap prefab and go from there. 

Wrong thread ?

I heard somewhere that Panjabis gave their dogs English names (Tommy, Johnny etc) because of hate towards the British Raj.
