In an interview with Citizen TV, Makindu Temple manager Amardip Singh narrated how the family left in high spirits.
They left happily. While on their way before the accident occurred, Mr. Vohra called me for official work. Just after half an hour, I got a call from someone that he was no more. He was generous and a kind person. His death is a major blow. It’s a big loss to us.
On Saturday, the family visited children’s home near the temple to donate foodstuffs, toiletries, clothes, footwear among other items.
