Kishni Mahay, aged 64, was killed when she was hit by a police car while she was on a pedestrian crossing on the 14 March 1989. Kishni was hit on the Cannock Road in Wolverhampton and thrown more than 30 yards. The death was ruled accidental. An investigation by police claimed that she had run out into the road.
The family have never been satisfied by this outcome and have repeatedly called for a new investigation. Kishni’s son, Raj Mahay, who was quickly at the scene of his mothers death, said the family still had not had justice and needed closure.
In 2018 Raj said; “For the last 29 years our family have vigorously believed that a gross injustice has reigned over my mother’s death. An unbiased Independent inquiry would conclusively reveal justice and bring Kishni Mahay dignity in death. She will be able to rest in peace and we can achieve the closure we yearn.
