Police were called by the East Midlands Ambulance Service to Tarbat Road shortly after 1.30pm on Monday 6 May after Tarnjeet was found dead inside an address.

The family of Tarnjeet Chagger have released the following tribute and have asked that their privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time.

“Our beloved Tarnjeet, a soul that truly cared for others more than herself. A soul that adored and looked after her mum, younger sister and younger brother,” they said.

“She took on the responsibility of a father for her siblings and was the backbone of the family. She was a bubbly, caring and a funny character who radiated nothing but happiness. She knew the right things to say and do. She was not just a sister or a daughter, she was our best friend. A best friend who is no longer with us. It is a cruel world we live in. Tarnjeet will be remembered by many and we’re grateful she touched all of our lives.”
