Boost for Ch­hokar case

Evening Times - - FEATURES -

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.
