Jan 19, 2009 RICHMOND: PERSON OF INTEREST IN INDIAN RESTAURANT HOMICIDES ARRESTED

Police have arrested a person of interest in the Dec. 27, 2007, murders of two brothers inside their Indian restaurant in Richmond, police Sgt. Bisa French said today.Police arrested 34-year-old Fiji native Rajesh Kumar on Sunday in Sacramento on suspicion of fraud, which investigators believe could have been the motive for the killings.The two victims, 30-year-old Ravinder Kalsi and 42-year-old Paramjit Kalsi, owned Sahib Indian Restaurant at 12221 San Pablo Ave.On the night of their murders, the brothers had just closed the restaurant for the evening, when, shortly after 9 p.m., two men knocked on the door, police said at the time. Ravinder Kalsi apparently opened the door for the men and they shot him immediately, police said.The men then stepped over Ravinder Kalsi’s body and chased Paramjit Kalsi. The suspects fired several times at Paramjit Kalsi, killing him in the restaurant’s kitchen area, police said.Through their investigation, police allegedly found evidence that Kumar, a self-employed representative for a company called Pre-Paid Legal Services Inc., knew the victims and often ate at their restaurant. Kumar had allegedly offered to sell legal insurance to the brothers, but they declined.Over time, Kumar allegedly befriended the two victims and an employee at the restaurant, Detective Nicole Abetkov said.The employee allegedly gave Kumar his own money and money he borrowed from the victims. The amount allegedly came to “a couple hundred thousand dollars,” Abetkov said. Investigators believe the alleged fraud could have been the motive for the two murders, although they do not believe Kumar was the shooter, Abetkov said.French said investigators are hoping Kumar may be able to provide information about the suspects who killed the Kalsi brothers.
