Extradite Jassi’s mother, uncle to India in ‘honour killing’ case: Canadian Supreme Court

By 10th September 2017 0 Comments

The Supreme Court of Canada on Friday ruled that Jassi Sidhu’s mother Malkit Sidhu and uncle Surjeet Badesha should be extradited to India in the connection with the 2000 ‘honour killing’ case.
Quoting the Supreme Court judgement, website www.cbc.ca reported that the duo should be extradited to face trial for the alleged murder. The Supreme Court of Canada had last year agreed to hear a review appeal on extraditing Malkit Sidhu and Surjeet Badesha to India, even as the Punjab Police had sent a proposal to the state Home Department for conducting their trial though video-conferencing from a Canadian jail.
Jaswinder Kaur Sidhu alias Jassi, a resident of Maple Bridge, Canada, was murdered in Punjab’s Sangrur district by contract killers allegedly hired by her mother and uncle in 2000.

“I will ask Jassi’s mother: Was our love a crime that she got her killed?” says Sukhwinder Singh Sidhu (38) alias Mithu, reacting to the Canadian Supreme Court’s decision to allow the extradition of Jassi’s mother Malkiat Kaur Sidhu and maternal uncle Surjit Singh Badesha.
“Finally, my wife’s killers will face trial for murder. My sole wish is to see them behind bars,” he said today.
