“We were informed about the incident by relatives. It has been five days, and his post-mortem is yet to be done. We have reached out to the gurdwara committee for more information, and they are helping us. We have also appealed to our government for justice and the arrest of the killers,” said Gurdeep Singh, the deceased’s brother-in-law, reported the Times of India.

Selma police say there was no indication of racial motivation behind Raj Singh’s killing, according to Selma-based news outlet GVWire, which cited sergeant Caleb Garcia.
