Surrey Comet: Sister of honour killing victim given bravery award Sister of honour killing victim given bravery award

A Kingston borough resident has won an award for bravery after becoming the first person to give evidence in an open court for an “honour killing” trial.

Sarbjit Kaur Athwal won the Best magazine Bravest Woman Award last month.

She played an active role in bringing justice to the family members who arranged the murder of her sister-in-law Surjit Athwal who was drugged, drowned and murdered in India after she became “too western”.

She is now divorced and lives with her two children in the borough.
