Gurpinder Singh, 25, a resident of Kotla Chahal village, was murdered by unidentified assailants while he was working in a store in Italy on June 18. Gurpinder had been doing odd jobs in Rome for the past few months.
Gurpinder had come home on leave for two months and returned on March 30. He was to return in September for the wedding of his younger sister.
“Gurpinder had changed his duty hours on June 18 to take part in the nagar kirtan in Rome the next day. Harpinder dropped him at the store, where he had been working after returning from India,” his father Balbir Singh said.
On June 19, the family got a call from the elder son that Gurpinder had been murdered by unidentified assailants while working at the store.
The family is awaiting the Gurpinder's body that is expected to reach Kotla Chahal on July 8.
