A SON has paid tribute to his mother whose demise marks the fourth tragic death in a case which has never been far from the headlines.
Rory Bhandari, 48, is coming to terms with the death of his mother Theresa in a head-on collision near her Garden City home which is being investigated by police.
Mrs Bhandari, 76, died from her injuries at the Countess of Chester Hospital last Thursday after being involved in a car crash on the Welsh Road near the ‘blue bridge’ just two minutes’ from her Foxes Lane home on Friday, July 25.
A woman in her 30s was also taken to the Countess with serious injuries but has since believed to have been discharged.
In 2002 Mrs Bhandari lost her husband of 47 years, Amrit, known as ‘Andy’, after he was mugged by Sarah Campbell from Hampton, near Malpas, and Kim Woolley, from Liverpool, outside the Chester Odeon in Northgate Street.
Campbell and Woolley were convicted of manslaughter but Campbell died of a drugs overdose shortly after arriving at Styal Women’s Prison.
Her mother Pauline began a campaign to improve conditions for female prisoners but in May she died in a suspected suicide.
A full interview with Rory Bhandari appears in this Friday’s edition of The Chronicle.
