Boost for Chhokar case
A TOP legal eagle offered to help fight for the family of murdered man Surjit Singh Chhokar.
The controversy surrounding the Sikh’s death was compared to the that of the killing of Stephen Lawrence.
Speaking as supporters delivered a 5000-name petition to the Lord Advocate’s office in Edinburgh, family spokesman Aamer Anwar said leading barrister Michael Mansfield QC would be a welcome addition to the fight for answers about the murder.
Mr Mansfield represented the family of Stephen Lawrence, the black teenager murdered in south London in 1993.
