Detectives investigating the disappearance of a Sikh woman who lived in Leeds in the 1980s are appealing for information following the arrest of two people on suspicion of her murder.
Officers from West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team arrested a 75-year-old man on suspicion of the murder of Harbans Kaur Lally and arrested a 74-year-old woman on suspicion of conspiracy to murder when they searched an address in Gravesend, Kent, on Monday 8 January.
A 53-year-old man was also arrested on the same day from an address in the Hay Mills area of Birmingham on suspicion of perjury.
He has been released under investigation and the other man and woman have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
The investigation comes as a result of information received by detectives that raised concerns about Harbans’ disappearance and suspected murder.
It is believed she returned from Leeds to Rugby, her birthplace, in 1985 and disappeared after that, possibly after travelling to India. She was 19-years-old at the time.
