Husband secretly fed wife steroids to ‘fatten her up’ and make her stay at home


A JEALOUS and controlling husband secretly fed his wife dangerous ­steroids so she would get fat and stay at home to cook for him.

Dalwara Singh, 41, ground up high-strength anabolic steroid tablets before slipping them into meals and wine for his wife Jaspreet Singh Gill, a court heard.

The powerful drugs caused the 37-year-old mum-of-two to break out in spots and grow hair on her face and back.

Singh was caught when the couple’s teenage daughter heard him using a pestle and mortar and his wife found the drugs in a locked cupboard.

He admitted administering a poison or noxious substance with intent to injure, aggrieve or annoy. But he escaped prison and was instead given a suspended jail sentence.

After hearing her estranged husband had also been given a restraining order preventing him from contacting her, Jaspreet said: “I’m happy, I don’t want him near me. I forgave him for 17 years but won’t do that any more.”

Prosecutor Caroline Bray told the court: “She felt controlled by him. Early in the marriage she didn’t enjoy normal freedoms like getting a job, socialising and couldn’t choose what she wore. He accused her of infidelity.

“In 2009 she found work and got out a bit more. That’s when things started to go wrong. He wanted to stop her from going out – he wanted her to be at home to cook for him and look after the children.

“She’s now on female hormone tablets to counter the effects and redress the hormonal balance. These steroids have no listed benefits for women and can have permanent masculating effects.”

Food factory department manager Singh, of Leicester, bought the prescription steroids Anapolon and Dianabol on the internet. He admitted administering them between last November and January.

When his wife complained that her meals tasted bitter, Singh pretended to be upset and got her to finish them.

Judge Ebraham Mooncey told Singh at Leicester crown court: “You’ve escaped prison by the skin of your teeth. Over a period of weeks you secreted ­steroids designed for athletes to gain muscles in your wife’s food.

“You may have been doing it to make her give up her job, gain weight and stay in – and make her rely on you. It was a well-planned exercise. She trusted you. It’s had a terrible effect on her, causing long-term emotional harm.”

Singh has now left the family home and has limited contact with his 15-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter.

He was given a 12-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to attend a domestic abuse programme.

His lawyer David Martin-Sperry said: “It’s a truly bizarre case. He’s deeply embarrassed and appalled, ashamed and bitterly regrets it.

“He did it so she’d gain weight to get back to the pattern of their life, so she’d cook dinner and look after the kids.”

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
