    The funeral for Surinder Singh, who was shot to death last week while walking with a friend in Elk Grove, has drawn several hundred mourners this morning to a Sacramento funeral home.

    Relatives, friends and community officials from Elk Grove are at the North Sacramento Funeral Home on El Camino Way to pay their last respects to the 65-year-old who died on south Stockton Boulevard while walking with his friend Gurmej Atwal, 78.

    Authorities are investigating the March 4 shooting, which left Atwal in critical condition, as a hate crime.

    Today's ceremony for Singh is subdued compared to a Friday night candlelight vigil held at the site of the shooting, near Green Pointe Drive.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
