Police Minister Mark Ryan approved the major reward for information leading to the location and arrest of 38-year-old Rajwinder Singh, believed to be overseas, in relation to Toyah’s murder.

Rajwinder Singh lived in Innisfail but is originally from Buttar Kalan, Punjab India.

Deputy Commissioner Tracy Linford said this was the first time an initial reward of $1 million had been offered in Queensland.

“We are very grateful for the Government’s support in approving this significant reward which we believe will assist us in tracking down Rajwinder Singh,”

Deputy Commissioner Linford said.

It is critical that Police capture the attention of an international audience to reach this individual.

“Police will not give up – we remain incredibly determined to find answers for Toyah’s family and will do whatever we can to bring them closure.”

Minister Ryan said in addition, an appropriate indemnity from prosecution would be considered for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the crime, who first gives such information which leads to Rajwinder Singh’s arrest.“

“Like many other Queenslanders, I am sickened by this heinous crime and I commend the Queensland Police Service for their tireless efforts in the pursuit of justice for Toyah and her family,”

Minister Ryan said.
