A B.C. mother accused of orchestrating the murder of a B.C. woman in India have been granted bail.
Her release comes as she and her brother wait to find out if Canada’s highest court will hear Malkit Sidhu and Surjit Badesha’s case.
Indian officials want the two to stand trial for the murder of 25-year-old Jassi Sidhu, a Maple Ridge woman who secretly married a rickshaw driver against the wishes of her family.
The federal government wants the pair extradited – something backed up by the BC Supreme Court.
The BC Court of Appeal overturned the order over concerns the pair would be tortured.
If the Supreme Court of Canada refuses to hear the case, Sidhu and Badesha won’t be forced to go to India, although they could be tried in Canada.
