Beautician Jaswinder Kaur Sidhu from Maple Ridge, British Columbia was kidnapped, tortured and killed in June 2000.
Her body with the throat slit was found in a ditch, 45 kilometres from the village of Kaonke Khosa in Punjab.
The popular 25-year-old Canadian, called “Jassi” by her friends was punished because she went against her family’s wishes and married the man she loved - Sukhwinder "Mithu" Singh, a poor auto-rickshaw driver.
Police say her desperate pleas to her family in Canada over the phone while she was being beaten by contract killers at an abandoned farmhouse were ignored.
Shortly after Jassi's body was found Indian police alleged that family members, including her mother and uncle in B.C., paid thugs up to $50,000 for the murder.
The order to kill, police say "came from Canada". They have charged Jassi's mother Malkiat Kaur and uncle, Surjit Singh Badesh
