An 87-year-old man killed his wife at their home in Coventry before setting himself alight in their garden, an inquest has heard.

Sewa Singh Badial attacked his wife Sukhjit, 73, with a type of machete last June, causing extensive wounds to her head and face.

He left a note saying there had been a fight between them and he had hit her.

Coventry coroner Delroy Henry recorded that Mr Badial unlawfully killed his wife before taking his own life.

The couple ran the long-established Badial clothes store on Soho Road in Handsworth, Birmingham.

Farewell note

Mrs Badial's body was found in the living of their home on Kenilworth Road in the city on 29 June, the inquest in Coventry heard earlier this month.

She had suffered a number of chop wounds to her upper body and limbs which were described as "defensive actions to ward off a bladed implement".


A large billhook (a garden machete), was found by her body, along with a wrench, which was also used to hit her with, the inquest heard.

She died of head and facial injuries.

Mr Badial was seen on CCTV at the home to walk out of the house wearing blood stained clothes. He was found on a fire pit in the garden.

His cause of death was from the effects of fire, the coroner said.

A farewell note written by him was found on a chair in the living room stating there had been a fight between them. He admitted hitting Mrs Badial and that he would end his life for his family.

At the time of their deaths, the couple's family said they had been "overwhelmed by your messages of love and affection for our dear parents".

They said they were "keen supporters of good causes and committed members of the local Midlands community" and in India had also founded rural hospitals along with several schools and colleges for underprivileged girls.

Very strange. At that age why would he go after his wife with such force? Unless she'd made his life unbearable behind closed doors for their entire life together, and he just snapped?

    • Many of current Sikh youth (16 and under) have special auras, they got lifetimes of bhagati Take example of how there is huge demand for certain jobs, where they get like 500 applications for 1 role. There is also a huge demand for obtaining the human body, for the opportunity to merge back into God. Once upon a time this earth was a beautiful place, during satyug, then what happened? As people do more paap, the soul they give birth to has less bhagati. It's a downward spiral from there. These people killing each other today, who do you think they were before this? They were ghosts and spirits. When parents don't have bhagati and too much paap that's the type of soul they give birth to. There's no shortage of good souls waiting to take birth, but they require parents with suitable bhagati which is very hard to find. Daas had a vision through dasam duar about khalsa raj, that right now there's nearly 1 billion (call it 960 million if you want) souls (not body's, raw souls - like ghosts but harmless) on this earth and they are begging 24/7 from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to be blessed a human life. They are souls from satyug who need 1 more life to take amrit before they can enter sachkhand. So while humans waste their life away blinded by maya, these souls are non stop doing seva and begging guru sahib ji for the gift of human life.  Today's young generation are more into Sikhi than their parents, in turn they give birth to souls with even more bhagati - upward spiral. The coming times are scary. The ones who have taken amrit, their souls will enter directly into sachkhand then take birth again during peaceful times to complete their remaining karams etc. 
    • Anything in particular making you feel this way? 
    • You need to read history, we were doing really well before they turned up. By the time they left, it was a mess. 
    • 1. my parents bought me here as a child. I didn't choose to. 2. I will not be here forever. 3. They got great benefits from the services of Punjabi men fighting their wars. 4. They ruined the structure of our homeland by giving away the good part to muslims. So they fully deserve to get a taste of their own medicine. 5. They still loot resources from third world countries. 6. If they can come, colonize and occupy entire countries by their policies of divide and rule in the name of "trade", why can't pocs go to their countries to work? I am pretty sure the colonization was to extract as much resources as possible and not for the benefit of the people. So who cares if certain groups of pocs are living on benefits in their countries or cause issues. I'm pretty sure when they were ruining your homeland they weren't thinking about all these things.Some of you all care too much on behalf of a group of people who dont care whether you live or die. It's like it hurts you more than them every time you people go " sO wHy ArE yOu LiViNg In ThEiR cOuNtRiEs".  
    • Then why do you live in a 'Euro' country?
