Brussels: Hundreds of members of the Indian community paid tributes to four members of a Sikh family who were brutally murdered in the Belgian capital, EuAsiaNews reported.

Jasbir Singh`s wife and their three young children were killed by a suspected Bangladeshi man in their home in Etterbeek area of Brussels on September 28.

On Sunday evening, Sikh priests recited prayers for the deceased, while mourners placed flowers at the door of the house.

A "white march" was also held, with mourners carrying white balloons and pictures of the three slain children and their mother.

The march was supported by the Etterbeek municipality whose mayor was also present to offer his condolences to Jasbir Singh, the father and husband of the deceased.

A number of Belgians and Bangladeshis also joined the march to express their condolences, and condemnation of the killing.

Belgian police are looking for a 29-year-old Bangladeshi man for his alleged involvement in the crime. He was working at the same restaurant where Jasbir Singh worked and has disappeared since the day of the killing.
