    SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones is telling members of the Sikh community that a killer will be brought to justice.

    Two weeks ago, two elderly Sikh men were gunned down in Elk Grove while they were walking. One man, 65 year-old Surinder Singh died. His friend Gurmej Atwal was wounded and remains hospitalized in stable condition.

    There was no apparent motive for the crimes and no suspects have been arrested.

    "Many in our community are afraid to leave their homes wearing turbans or Indian dress for fear of being attacked," said Igbal Badwalz, a friend of Surinder Singh's.

    The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department along with the FBI vow to make an arrest soon and protect everyone living in the community.

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!
