Ishmeet's Family in Maldives!!
Ishmeet’s father (S. Gurprinder Singh) and chacha ji (Dr. C K Singh) have reached Maldives today. Based on our phone conversation with them on September 4th before their departure, they were scheduled to stay in the same resort (Chaaya Island Dhonveli Resort) where Ishmeet met his tragic end. As there was no initiation of any action or inquiry from the Indian government, a quest of a father to know how his only son died took this unfortunate and helpless family to Maldives on their own.
Before leaving they held a press conference in Delhi sharing their thoughts and concerns about the case. Dr. C K Singh further told us their plan of meeting the local press their in Maldives.
The Justice for Ishmeet Campaign Team has forwarded the contact information for the editors of Minivan News, a local English daily of Maldives, to Ishmeet’s family.
We also request the local Sikh Sangat in Maldives to come forward and help Ishmeet’s family. If you know anyone in Maldives, please pass on this information to them.
The family will hold another press conference after returning to India to apprise everyone what have they ascertain in Maldives.
(Sincere thanks to Mr. Maninder Singh Tuli for sharing Ishmeet’s family’s itinerary with us.)
