The family of Harender Singh alias Sunny, who died after a Delhi Police constable shot him in the neck on September 24, is demanding that the police provide a government job to his brother.

Sunny lost his life on Monday after a 48-hour struggle at St Stephen's Hospital. The 24-year-old had been supporting his family by running a mobile repair shop in Daryaganj since 2006.

A resident of Kishanganj railway colony, Sunny had helped the police nab Ajay Kumar Tomar, a head constable, who was trying to flee after first robbing and then shooting businessman Amarjeet Singh Chaddha near Lahori gate police station on Saturday.

"I lost my brother because a Delhi Police thug wasn't happy with his job and misused his power by robbing and shooting people. The police department is responsible for our loss and now they have no answers," said Gurjeet Singh, Sunny's brother, who was learning mobile repairing from his brother.

The Singh family had been looking for a suitable bride for Sunny.

The family is demanding that the commissioner of police take responsibility for the incident and provide a job to a family member.

"He (Sunny) supported our family. Our father is also not keeping well and his salary is not enough. IB Rani (DCP north) has assured us that she would do her best to help, but there can be nothing better than providing a job to a family member," added Gurjeet.

Constable Tomar, too, was shot, and died of multiple organ failure.

"The compensation will be announced soon and we'll make all possible efforts to help the family," a senior police officer said.
