Chhokar family fighter dropped

A NEW Labour supporter has forced a campaigner fighting for justice for the Chhokar family to officially drop the case. Aamer Anwar, a trainee solicitor, has been representing the family of Surjit Singh Chhokar. He will now have to do the work in his own time. Surjit was stabbed to death in Lanarkshire two years ago. The three men who were charged with his murder walked free.

Now Dr Raj Jandoo, the head of the inquiry into the Chhokar case, has written to Aamer's employers questioning his involvement. The firm then pulled out. Aamer has repeatedly challenged Dr Jandoo to hold a full public inquiry.
