Jalandhar, July 19: Palwinder Singh, alias Vicky, a 28-year-old city youth, who had moved to Canada about eight years ago, was shot dead by some unidentified assailants in Brampton. Though the exact reason of the killing is not known, his friend said the attackers had come with the intent to commit robbery. The youth was in the transport business.
His parents got to know about the incident from one of Vicky’s friends, who was sharing an apartment with him in Brampton. He said Vicky was killed by some unknown persons after he returned from work. Vicky’s elder sister Jaswinder Kaur, who also lives in Canada, said the investigation officials in Canada would hand over the body in 15 days.
Palwinder had celebrated his 28th birthday just two days ago. He last spoke to his parents the same night. Having gone to Canada in 2010, Vicky had visited his parents twice. His teary-eyed mother, Rajinder Kaur, who is a retired Punjab Agricultural manager, said, “Vicky tried hard to fulfil all our dreams. He was scheduled to come again in November.” Victim’s father Gurmez Singh, a retired ASI from the Punjab Police and a resident of National Avenue in Rama Mandi, said they had renovated their house and had planned to move in as Vicky was scheduled to return in November.
His mother said they were planning to get him married. She said, “The Canadian Government should adopt strict measures against people carrying weapons. Many innocent Punjabi youths are losing their lives. Protection should be provided to them.”
