Mann, accompanied by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Naresh Kataria, spent almost an hour with the family of Kuldeep Singh, 29, at Lauhuke Kalan in Zira, a sub division of Ferozepur district, and expressed condolences.

He is survived by his wife and son.

Mann handed over a cheque for 1 crore to the family as a grant and also assured to facilitate all help to the family.
