    Ishmeet Singh, a well known young celebrity singer and the winner of Voice of India contest (2007), was born on September 2nd, 1989 to Gurprinder Singh & Amritpal Kaur. Ishmeet Singh with his beautiful voice, sheer determination, commitment towards music, and of course with blessings from the Almighty, family, friends, and fans won the Voice of India title in the very first season of the contest. Apart from being an extremely talented singer, Ishmeet was known for his modesty, serenity, and strong family values. The guy was blessed to possess such humility in spite of attaining fame in such a short time.

    As they say the good die young, Ishmeet died on July 29th, 2008 in the Maldives. Ishmeet had gone to Maldives to perform for the 'Star Voice of Maldives' contest to be held on the 1st of August, 2008. He “supposedly” drowned in the swimming pool of the Chaaya Island Dhonveli resort, at which he was staying on Tuesday, 29th of July 2008 only three days before he was scheduled to perform.

    The news of his untimely death has shocked the whole country and his fans. This tragic news is particularly shocking for Sikhs as he was representing his clean Sikh Identity all round the world. Ishmeet made Sikhs proud of his achievement and by his presence at recognised high class venues. Ishmeet not only mesmerized the music fraternity but also enthralled the whole world with his voice and devotion to singing.
    There are many unanswered concerns about Ishmeet’s death. Drowning of a 5 ft 11inch tall guy in a swimming pool which was about 7.5 ft deep seems absurd and questionable. The corroboration of the facts by eye witnesses seem fragile. Definitely the loose ends of the mystery need to be tied before concluding anything.However, just hours before he was scheduled to get a state funeral, Ishmeet's uncle Charan Kamal Singh said in Ludhiana on Thursday that injury marks on the forehead and chest and the budding singer's swollen face had aroused suspicion that he may have been murdered.
    "His death is not an accident alone. It could be part of a conspiracy. We want the matter investigated thoroughly. We want a case registered," Ishmeet's uncle told reporters in Ludhiana.
    Photographs of the singer's body clearly showed a black mark on his forehead. The final post mortem report would be made available by Thursday evening.
    Darbar-e-Khalsa Dal, a Sikh organisation, has asked the Government of India to initiate a CBI inquiry into the death of Ishmeet Singh, winner of Star voice of India.

    Addressing a gathering at the meeting of the organisation held at local gurdwara Gau Ghat, Jasdeep Singh Kaonke, president of the organisation, said its strange that Prime Minister of India Dr Manmohan Singh is not accepting the demand of a CBI enquiry. Ishmeet Singh had brought laurels for the whole Sikh community.”

    Kaonke said Ishmeet’s death was a part of a pre planned deep-rooted conspiracy to stop the rising star from attaining a high position in the musical world of the country. He said the the criminals behind the alleged murder could be brought before the people only through CBI enquiry.

    He said they would be forced to agitate against the Government if their demand is not met. He also appealed all the social, religious and the political organisations of the state to come together and urge the government to accept their demand.
