A MAN who left the country five years ago while being investigated over the deaths of two brothers in a traffic accident was jailed on Thursday.

Dilveer Singh Gill, 30, pleaded guilty earlier to causing the deaths of Pardip Singh, 14, and Gurjiv Singh, 17, by driving more than 90kmh along Changi Village Road on Dec 2, 2002.

Through his negligence, the car veered left, ran off the road and slammed into a tree, killing the two teenagers.

The brothers were not wearing seat belts then. Dilveer Singh and his front seat passenger, the boys' cousin, Mr Jaspaul Singh, then 24, were taken to Changi General Hospital for emergency treatment.

Dilveer was found smelling of alcohol but his blood alcohol level taken subsequently was below the legal limit.

Dilveer was jailed six months and banned from driving for eight years for causing death, and another two years for remaining in Canada without having a valid exit permit.

Two other charges under the Enlistment Act and another of causing grievous hurt to Mr Jaspaul Singh were taken into consideration.
