Slain woman unhappy, family says

Slain woman unhappy, family says: "Slain Surrey mom Amanpreet Kaur Bahia was unhappy with the controlling atmosphere in the home she shared with her husband and his parents, her three siblings told The Province yesterday.

They said she had practically no social life, was told not to wear makeup or jewelry, was rarely allowed to speak to her overseas relatives by phone, and had been unhappy since her marriage in India in 1995.

The picture they painted is in sharp contrast to statements made by her husband's family that there were no issues in the home prior to her death on Feb. 7.

The slain woman's brother, Jugraj Kahlon, a criminal lawyer in Punjab, his sisters Manjinder Gill and Sukhinderjit Kaur spoke to The Province one day after Bahia's funeral in Delta at which mourners screamed for justice."
