    Ropar resident gunned down in Virginia

    Ropar, May 30

    In yet another incident of attacks on Indians abroad, a Punjabi youth was allegedly shot down by Negros** in Virginia on Friday night. Prima facie it seems to be a case of robbery.

    Nirmal Singh, a resident of Mianpur village of Ropar district, was killed at Virginia, US, on Friday night. His wife, Ranjit Kaur, who lives in their native village, got a call from her relatives in Virginia that Nirmal was shot dead at the store where he worked.

    Nirmal Singh has a daughter, who lives at Atlanta, and two sons, Daljit Singh and Kuljit Singh. Daljit stays in Canada, while the other in Kuwait.

    As per information, three armed Negroes entered the store around midnight when Nirmal Singh and his Gujarati colleague were about to leave.

    The Negros allegedly demanded money from them. On being denied the same, they opened fire. One of the bullets hit the Gujarati employee’s leg and he fell down. The assailants then caught hold of Nirmal and repeatedly fired at him. Nirmal Singh died on the spot.

    An agriculturist, Nirmal Singh, had migrated to the US two years ago. He had got his green card couple of days ago.

    His nephew, Hardeep Singh, said his body was in such a bad shape that it might not be brought to India. His daughter, Sarabjit Kaur, might cremate the body at Virginia itself.

    A pall of gloom descended on Nirmal’s house at Mianpur when people came to know about the gory killing. The family members would decide about the cremation after getting an approval from the Virginia police.

    ** Moderation note: Although the word "Negros" is rarely used in American English, written or spoken, this article was taken from the Tribune News service, and as such no changes were made. No offense is intended on the part of the poster. Thank you, Narayanjot Kaur
