Sukhjinder Singh “Simon” Sadhra, 35, of Ross, is accused of strangling his wife on Oct. 9, leaving her face bruised and swollen. Sadhra is also one of the men accused in the Sept. 20 beating of two sisters at an Exxon station in Pittsburgh’s Marshall-Shadeland neighborhood.

Domestic violence charges have been filed against one of the men accused in the Sept. 20 beating of two sisters at an Exxon station in Pittsburgh’s Marshall-Shadeland neighborhood.

Sukhjinder Singh “Simon” Sadhra, 35, of Ross, is accused of strangling his wife Oct. 9, leaving her face bruised and swollen, according to a criminal complaint.

She called police the following morning after she locked herself in a bedroom with her infant daughter, according to the complaint.

Ross police responded and talked with the woman. She told police Sadhra choked her with both hands to the point she couldn’t breathe, according to the complaint.

It happened before, the woman said, and she said she now fears for her life, according to the complaint.

Sadhra is charged with strangulation and simple assault.

Pittsburgh defense attorney David Shrager, who represents Sadhra in the Exxon incident, said Tuesday that he does not represent Sadhra on the new charges.

Shrager represents Sadhra and Balkar “Bill” Singh, 40, of Harmar, in the Exxon case.

They are accused of beating two sisters Sept. 20 at the gas station, where they worked, in a dispute over $17 in spilled gas.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.
