Sukhjeet’s family said: “Our beautiful, kind-hearted sister was one of the most caring and loving people you could ever meet. People who knew her will know this. She never held grudges and loved everyone.

“She has been taken from her children, from a mother and from her brother and sister. This was not her time to go yet, she had so much love to offer. Her children still need her love, support and wise words.

“We will never overcome our sisters loss and never forgive the people involved who took our beautiful sister away from us.”

Sukhjeet’s family have shared this photograph of her.

Our thoughts remain with Sukhjeet’s family at this difficult time; they are understandably heartbroken.
