Sarbjit Kaur Athwal

Sarbjit Kaur Athwal is a British Indian, whose sister-in-law Surjit was the victim of an honour killing. Sarbjit secretly and bravely campaigned for justice for Surjit, seeking murder convictions for her husband’s mother and brother. They were jailed, but Sarbjit continues to receive death threats and ostracisation by the Sikh community.

She has since become a police community support officer, in gratitude for the staunch support of Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll.
