Sir Mota Singh grabs 'Pride of Sikh Community' award


London, May 2 (PTI)[/B] Sir Mota Singh QC, first Indian-origin Sikh to be knighted this year by the Queen for his services to the administration of justice in the UK, has been chosen for the Pride of Sikh Community Award.

Rami Ranger, MBE, President of the British Sikh Association presented the award to Sir Mota Singh at a function organised to celebrate Vaisakhi at South Ruislip here.

Recipient of a number of lifetime achievement awards, Sir Mota Singh went into Chambers here to practise at the Bar in 1965. Within just 11 years, Singh was appointed a Deputy Judge, Queen's Counsel, a Recorder of the Crown Courts and then a Circuit Judge.

He was the first from a minority ethnic group to occupy such a high position.

Ranger said Sir Mota Singh was the first turbaned Sikh Judge in Britain and never had his judgement challenged in the higher courts.
