The mother and uncle of a B.C. woman who died in India in an alleged honour killing will be extradited to India, a Vancouver judge has ruled.

Jaswinder Sidhu, 25, of Maple Ridge, B.C., was hiding from her family in Puinjab, India, after marrying rickshaw driver Mithu Sidhu when she was killed in June 2000. Her husband was also seriously injured in the attack.

Seven people in India have been convicted of conspiracy to commit murder in her death.

On Friday, a Vancouver judge ruled her mother, Malkit Kaur Sidhu, and uncle, Surjit Singh Badesha, must be extradited to India. They both face murder and conspiracy charges in India.

The family has denied any involvement.
