US gurdwara shooting victims evenly split aid worth $1.1 mn
Washington: Survivors and families of victims of the Wisconsin gurdwara shooting incident last year have vowed not to let money divide them, after donations worth 1.1 million dollars poured in to the Sikh Temple from the US, India, Canada, England and elsewhere, agreeing to evenly split the amount.
According to The Washington Times, different life circumstances raised difficult questions on whether the families deserved an equal share of money or should the families of younger or higher-earning victims receive more.
In the end, on the advice of outside counsel, temple leaders divided it equally among all six families in a controversy-free decision, the report said.
Each family`s total amounted to more than 125,000 dollars, the report added.
