TWO further arrests have been made by detectives investigating the death of a father-of-two whose body was found with shotgun wounds.

As previously reported, Gurinderjit Rai was found dead in a car parked in a layby on Shepherds Farm Lane, Corhampton, in the Meon Valley, on July 13.

On Friday, September 20, officers arrested a 66-year-old man and a 42-year-old man, both from Winchester, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Both have been bailed pending further enquiries.

A total of nine arrests have now been made by police detectives.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesperson said recent police activity on Battery Hill forms part of the ongoing enquiries into the incident.

In July, Mr Rai's family paid tribute to him in a statement.

They said: “Gurinderjit was a devoted father to his two young children and a loving fiancé to his partner. He adored his parents. He had an infectious sense of humour and would always find the best of any situation.

“He was a principled man and would always be the first to offer help to those that needed it. He will be missed dearly by all his family and friends.”

As previously reported, Aston Hannis, of Winchester, was jailed for 12 months after he refused to hand over the passcode to his phone to police as part of their investigation.
