The death of a 46-year-old man in Falmouth last week is being investigated as a homicide, officials from the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office told The Cape Cod Times.
Jaswinder Singh, an employee at the Golden Swan Indian restaurant at 323 Main Street, was found dead Thursday night. Falmouth police found Jaswinder Singh around 9 p.m. on the lawn of a Shore Street home that shares an alley with the restaurant. He died from blood loss associated with a cutting wound caused by “sharp force trauma,’’ according to the state’s Chief Medical Examiner.
Authorities have not charged anyone in connection with the death.
Three men who worked with Jaswinder Singh were arrested Friday and charged with interfering with the police investigation. Salwinder Singh, 60; Karamjit Singh, 24; and Malkit Thind, 47, were charged with intimidating a police official. Thind, the owner of the restaurant, posted $100,000 cash bail this weekend. Salwinder Singh, a cook, and Karamjit Singh, a waiter, are being held on $100,000 cash bail. Though they share the same last name as Jaswinder Singh, there is no relation, Falmouth attorney Robert Nolan, who is representing Karamjit Singh, told The Cape Cod Times.
The three men share an apartment located at the restaurant’s address, 323 Main Street, according to Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe.
O’Keefe told The Cape Cod Times that Jaswinder Singh, an Indian national, moved to Massachusetts from New York in mid-August. He was on a work visa with Malkit Thind, and reportedly lived with the three men.
The three men were assigned an October 10 pretrial hearing date.
Falmouth police told Boston.com they could not comment on the investigation and directed questions to the district attorney. Calls to the Golden Swan Wednesday were not answered.
The case is under investigation by Falmouth Police and State Police Detectives.
