THE BRAVE have-a-go-hero, who was stabbed to death after chasing two muggers, was due to meet his ten-year-old son this week for the very first time.

Sukhwinder Singh had planned to fly out to his home country, India, for a surprise visit to his wife Sandeep, 28, and their son, Gurjinder.

The 31-year-old builder had never seen the boy, as he was born shortly after Sukhwinder moved to London ten years ago to earn money for the family.

On Saturday evening Upkar held a two-hour candlelight vigil for his companion, in Uphall Road, Barking, at the spot where Sukhwinder, a committed Sikh, was attacked.
