The body of Ranjot Singh, who was killed in Australia late last month, will be brought back home on Friday.

The Ministry of External Affairs is facilitating the transportation of the body which has been released after completion of all legal formalities in New South Wales where Ranjot was found charred to death on December 29.

The 25-year-old had apparently been killed two days earlier.

Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur will be at the Delhi International Airport when the body arrives, official sources said here today.

The mortal remains will be taken to his native place Nabha in Punjab for performance of last rites.

Ranjot, who had gone to Australia over a year ago, was into farming in Griffith near Melbourne. His wife was on a student visa.
