Update: Rape and attempted rape charges against Cippenham man dropped

Update 6/07/2018: Prosecutors have dropped charges of rape and attempted rape against a man from Cippenham.

Amrik Singh Bajwa, 63, of Bowyer Drive, was charged in February with three counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.

A Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) spokes-man said the case was discontinued in March as it no longer met the evidential test.

Mr Bajwa also faced two threats to kill charges, but the CPS formally offered no evidence.

Not guilty verdicts were recorded at a hearing at Reading Crown Court on Monday, June 18.

A restraining order was imposed, which was accepted by the defence.


A 63-year-old man from Cippenham accused of rape and threatening to kill two women will appear at Reading Crown Court next month.

Amrik Singh Bajwa of Bowyer Drive has been charged with three counts of raping a woman aged 16 or over.

The counts all relate to incidents in Slough which took place between November 2016 and January this year. 

He has also been charged with attempting to rape a woman aged 16 or over in October 2017 and for threatening to kill two women in January this year.

Bajwa is expected to enter pleas to his charges at Reading Crown Court on Monday, March 5.
