Mom and uncle for murder

In Ottawa this morning, a mother and uncle from B.C. accused of arranging the honour-killing of a relative in India continue to fight against the federal government's efforts to extradite them. 

The young woman was attacked in June 2000 in Punjab India and lower court proceedings were told the murder was because she had decided to marry a man considered unsuitable by her family.

Malkit Sidhu and Badesha were ordered extradited to India in 2014 to face murder and conspiracy charges, but B.C.'s high court put aside the case because of concerns the pair might be tortured or neglected if they were in an Indian jail cell.
