The body, which came in a Thai Airways flight from Bangkok, was received at the IGI Airport by Ranjodh's younger brother Satnam Singh and other family
members, with the minister accompanying them.
Satnam Singh demanded that the Indian government pressurise Australia to bring the guilty in his brother's murder to book.
The Ministry of External Affairs is facilitating the transportation of the body which has been released after completion of all legal formalities in New South Wales where Ranjodh Singh was found charred to death on December 29.
Singh had apparently been killed two days earlier.
The youth, who had gone to Australia over a year ago, was into farming in Griffith near Melbourne. His wife was on a student visa.
New Delhi: The body of the 25-year-old Ranjodh Singh, killed in Australia last month, was brought back here on Friday.
