THE FAMILY of a woman who was knocked down by a driver who was spared jail have spoken of their void and loss.

Charnjit Gosal ploughed into Nadia Sattar, 43, in Glasgow's Pollokshields in February 2017.

She initially appeared to blame another motorist - who ended up being treated as a suspect.

But, the 45 year-old was snared when CCTV captured the tragic incident.

She pleaded guilty to causing Miss Sattar's death by careless driving at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Gosal was today ordered to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work as she returned to the dock.

Her family said in a statement: "No sentence imposed can give redemption to our loss. Our family want justice in where the sentencing reflects the crime and prevents it ever happening again.

“The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”

They added that Nadia was the light, joy and unconditional support that was taken from them.

They added: "Her kindness, empathy and selflessness has left a void in many lives forever.

“The last two years has been extremely challenging for us, neither time nor reason will change the way we feel.

“No one knows how many times we have broken down and cried and tiresomely put on a brave face in front of the world.

"Nadia's last moments were revealed by the court and has become our last memory of her - a wilful and painful one."

Miss Sattar was struck as she crossed the city's Nithsdale Road en-route home.

She was flung into the air before landing on the road.

Gosal reversed back then opened her door.

Another driver tried to stop as she done this - and unwittingly dragged a stricken Miss Sattar under his car.

Gosal initially claimed the victim had "collapsed".

She then insisted the other driver's car had "gone right over her".

Gosal was described at the time as "quite aggressive".

Gosal later gave a statement and claimed Miss Gosal had "tripped".

Prosecutor Iain Gray said there had been "sufficient time and distance" for Gosal to avoid hitting Miss Sattar.

Sheriff Norman Ritchie also banned Gosal from the road for two years.
