Delhi govt promises all help to victims of gurudwara shooting
New Delhi: Delhi Government on Tuesday promised all possible help including financial assistance to the families of two brothers who were among the six persons who were killed in shooting in a gurudwara in the United States.
Delhi Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely visited the families of Ranjit Singh and his younger brother Sita Singh at their Vishnu Garden residence in West Delhi.
"Delhi Government will provide all possible help to both the families as their financial condition is not good. The deceased were only earning members of the families," Lovely, who is also in-charge of Gurudwara affairs, said.
He said wives of both Ranjit and Sita Singh will be provided job by Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee.
"We will take care education of the children of both the families besides taking care of all their requirements," Lovely said.
Ranjit and Sita Singh lost their lives when a former US soldier opened fire in the gurudwara in Wisconsin on Sunday night, in a case of hate crime.
Ranjit had left for the US 16 years ago when his son was just seven months old and had not visited India since then. His family said he was planning to visit the family this Diwali.
His son, 17-year-old Gurwinder Singh, has not seen his father since he was a toddler.
Ranjit`s younger brother Sita Singh was also killed in the incident.
