London, July 28 (ANI): A Brit Sikh policewoman is expected to win a five-figure payout after an employment tribunal ruled that she had suffered racist and religious humiliation at the hands of her trainer.

According to the Daily Express, Amandeep Kaur Grewal has claimed that she was singled out for unfair criticism and treatment because of her race by trainer Police Constable Lucinda Rigby.

When Grewal, 38, complained, Rigby told her that the other ­students were laughing at her behind her back.

A mother of two, Grewal said some of her fellow recruits at the Metropolitan Police College in Hendon, north London, treated her in a "less-than friendly fashion".

The tribunal in Reading rejected the Met's claim that trainers had considered Grewal's skills to be poor compared with other students.

The panel ruled that Grewal, who is now a policewoman in Kingston, southwest London, had been unfairly targeted.

It found the Met guilty of race and religious discrimination. Compensation will be decided later. (ANI)
