‘Horrific’: Ex-pharmacy manager jailed for life for murdering brother in chippy

A former pharmacy manager has been jailed for life after stabbing his brother to death in a fish and chip shop.

Inderjit Klare was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his brother, Jasreet Klare, in a fish and chip shop, local police announced last month (April 21).

According to Durham Constabulary, Inderjit Klare stabbed his brother “multiple times” in a “truly horrific attack” in the early hours of Sunday October 9 in Carters Fish and Chip Shop in Bishop Auckland.

Durham Constabulary confirmed to C+D today (May 5) that Mr Klare was the manager of a pharmacy in 2018 and that he was the defendant in a previous case.


“Minimum of 19 years”


Paramedics from the North East Ambulance Service attended the scene of the crime alongside police officers but “40-year-old Jasreet Klare was pronounced dead at the scene”, it said.

Mr Klare, aged 42 of Spennymoor, was arrested at the time, taken into police custody and interviewed by detectives, it added.

He was later charged with murder, which he denied, the police said.

Mr Klare’s trial was held at Teesside Crown Court and he was found guilty of the murder of his brother on April 21 by a jury.

He was “sentenced to life” and will serve a “minimum of 19 years in prison”, Durham Constabulary said.




Durham Constabulary’s detective superintendent Lee Gosling, who led the investigation, said it “was a truly horrific attack by Inderjit on his own brother”.

“His actions have left his family and friends suffering the consequences for the rest of their lives,” he added.

“Although nothing can change what happened on that day, I hope that the family can take some comfort and begin rebuilding their lives now that Inderjit has been brought to justice for his unforgivable actions,” he said.

Mr Gosling thanked the investigating officers “whose professionalism and tenacity” ensured that Mr Klare will spend “a significant number of years behind bars”.


“He will be missed dearly”


Jasreet Klare’s fiancée, Emma, said that he “loved his family unconditionally” and “always made time for his children and stepchildren”.

“He was an amazing and attentive father and loving fiancé”, she added.
