Ballarat Curry House chef jailed for 23 years over drunk customer's murder

Updated 31 May 2018, 10:32pm

A Nepalese chef who murdered a drunk customer at a Ballarat restaurant after he became abusive has been sentenced to 23 years jail, and will likely be deported on his release.

Hari Dhakal, 50, stabbed Abdullah Siddiqi to death in the kitchen of the Ballarat Curry House in October 2016.

The 38-year-old had brought a bottle of bourbon with him and was eating alone in the empty restaurant when he approached the counter to ask the waitress for more food.

But the court heard Dhakal came out from the kitchen and told Mr Siddiqi he had had too much drink.

It caused Mr Siddiqi to lose his temper and abuse Dhakal.

The court heard he began pushing Dhakal, causing the waitress to become distressed and urge the men to stop fighting.

The argument ended in the kitchen when Dhakal used a knife to stab Mr Siddiqi 17 times.

Afterwards he wrapped the knife in a plastic bag and walked to the police station, where he told the junior constable on duty "I've killed someone".

Dhakal was found guilty of murder by a jury, which rejected his claim he acted in self-defence.

In sentencing, Victorian Supreme Court Justice Lex Lasry said the threat Mr Siddiqi posed was totally out of proportion with the action Dhakal took.

"You were sober and he was intoxicated," Justice Lasry said.

"You were entitled to be offended by what he said… however your actions in stabbing him to death went far beyond anything done to you by Mr Siddiqi.

"You lost control of your temper inflicting a large amount of wounds."

The court heard Dhakal was remorseful and the murder had been a spontaneous act of violence after significant provocation.

Dhakal will serve a minimum 17 years jail and face deportation to Nepal on his release.

This is just BS. This to me more like Self defense than killing.

The jury should have been a little lenient towards Mr. Dhakal provided that he was working in a kitchen -probably over 100 C, tired of making chicken tikka masala everyday, being provoked by a drunkard and self surrendering to the cops.

I think it was considered on the case. Murder in cold blood gets you more than 30 yrs behind the bars in Australia.

There must be more to the story. You need to be really psycho or your life must be extremely in danger to stab someone 17 times. I don't believe Mr. Dhakal just stabbed him 17 times just because he was angry.
