Three men arraigned in connection with Falmouth death

Bail set at $100,000 each, all three charged with interfering with a police investigation

Three Falmouth men were arraigned in Falmouth District Court Monday in connection with the death of a 46-year-old Indian man. The three men, 34-year-old Karim Jit Singh, 60-year-old Salinder Singh and 48-year-old Malkit Thind, were all charged with interfering with a police investigation. All three men list 323 Main Street, Apt. 1 in Falmouth, the location of the Golden Swan Restaurant as their address.

Thursday night around 9 p.m., police and EMTs responded to an injury call in the area of 13 Shore Street near the restaurant.  There they found the victim identified as Jaswinder Singh. Singh, according the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Boston, died of blood loss associated with a cutting wound caused by sharp force trauma, the Cape & Islands District Attorney's Office said.

On Friday police arrested Karim Jit Singh and Salinder Singh, charging them with intentionally misleading a police investigation. Thind was also arrested on Friday and charged with misleading police. Thind is the owner of the Golden Swan Restaurant (dba AM Dining, Inc.)

According to the DA, the arraignment of Karim Jit Singh and Salinder Singh were postponed from Friday until Monday so a Punjabi interpreter could be made available. The two men were held without bail over the weekend. Thind remained free after posting bail on Friday.

During the arraignment in Falmouth District Court Monday, Judge Michael C. Creedon set bail for each of the men at $100,000, the DA's Office said.

Karim Jit Singh and Salinder Singh and the victim, Jaswinder Singh, were all also associated with the Golden Swan.

No one has been charged with causing Singh's death. The charge of intentionally misleading a police investigation carries a sentence of up to 10 years in state prison.
