Surjit Singh Chhokar's brave mum speaks out for the first time of grief as justice is finally done
SURJIT Singh Chhokar’s mum yesterday spoke publicly about her family grief for the first time.
Gurdev, 73, said she was glad her husband Darshan, who passed away in November, at least lived long enough to know that a new trial was in the offing under double jeopardy law changes.

Gurdev said she believes her family has changed the criminal justice system in Scotland forever.
