AS WE all know Sukhwinder Singh was stabbed to death on 8th January 2010 behind the Barking Railway station at Loxford Road while helping a lady pedestrian from robbery.

On the day of religious ceremony held in his honour at Gurdwara Singh Sabha London East Barking, a number of speakers paid their tributes and saluted to his supreme sacrifice, asking Barking and Dagenham to recognise his "Bravery".

The leader of the Borough Cllr Liam Smith did send a letter of condolence to his family and Sikh Community through the management of Gurdwara Barking. When I mentioned the wishes of the Sikh community next day, he was delighted to recognise the bravery of Sukhwinder Singh in the form of Motion in the monthly Council Assembly meeting.

I had honour to move the motion which was seconded by Cllr Nirmal Singh Gill.
