The Australian High Commissioner to India, the Hon Barry O’Farrell AO, today noted the announcement by the Queensland Government of an AUD $1,000,000 (or approximately 531 lakh rupees) reward for information leading to the location and arrest of Mr Rajwinder Singh.

Mr Rajwinder Singh, 38, is wanted by Queensland authorities in relation to the murder of Ms Toyah Cordingley in 2018.

Ms Cordingley was reported missing on Sunday October 21, 2018. Her body was tragically discovered the following morning at Wangetti Beach, Queensland.

Mr Rajwinder Singh was born in Buttar Kalan, India in 1984. Mr Rajwinder Singh is believed to be living in India, although his exact whereabouts are unknown.

Detective Inspector Sonia Smith said investigations into Toyah’s murder, including bringing the person responsible to justice, are priorities for the Queensland Police Service.

“A dedicated team of Queensland Police detectives has continued to work tirelessly towards ensuring justice for Toyah Cordingley and her family,” Detective Inspector Smith said.

“We strongly believe there are people who could share information about the whereabouts of Rajwinder Singh. 

“This is most definitely the time to come forward and tell us what you know.”

The Australian Federal Police based in New Delhi have been working with the Central Bureau of Investigation in relation to this case. The reward offered by the Queensland Government will support efforts by Indian authorities to locate and apprehend Mr Rajwinder Singh.
