Shamed

The honour killing that shocked Britain – by the sister who fought for justice

Virgin Books (June 2013)

Athwal Shamed27-year-old Surjit Athwal was lured by her husband to a wedding in India, where she was murdered and her body thrown into a river. Surjit’s sister-in-law, Sarbjit Athwal, had been present at the family meeting in London, at which her mother-in-law pronounced a death sentence on the absent Surjit, for bringing dishonour to them. Risking the same fate, Sarbjit covertly sought justice for nine years, finally securing long custodial sentences for Surjit’s mother-in-law and her husband. Speaking publicly for the first time, this brave woman exposes the full extent and extreme injustices of forced marriages and honour killings in Britain today.
