    SILICON VALLEY: The killing of two Sikh brothers in their restaurant at Bay Area in California has shocked the community which suspected it to be the result of hate crime.

    The two Indian-American restaurateurs -- 30-year-old Ravinder Kalsi, owner of 'Sahib Indian Restaurant' and his 42-year-old brother Paramjit Kalsi -- were shot dead by unidentified men in their restaurant at Bay Area on Thursday night.

    The killings left Richmond's substantial Sikh community searching for reasons. "Nothing about the Kalsis made them obvious targets. They were totally pure guys, not in a fanatical way, just really hard-working," Kalsis' friend Gurman Bal said, adding he fears the killings could be a hate crime but police said there was no clear evidence of it.

    Police was clueless about the reason behind the killing. "The assailants had touched nothing. It does not look like a robbery. It looks like these two guys went in there to kill," Richmond Detective Sgt Mitch Peixoto said. "That's what worries me. Why?"

    However, police said, they will investigate all possibilities.

    "We are shocked," Tehal Singh, said an in-law of one of the victims.

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!
