He is survived by his wife and a seven-year-old daughter. His father’s name is Amarjit Singh and his brother’s name is Rinku.
His old friends were reportedly shocked by his death as they knew him as a quiet person. Some were even shocked knowing that he was alleged in the bomb blast conspiracy.
Some even say that he was quite depressed after his dismissal from the police services.
Two years ago, he was dismissed from the police services as he was nabbed by the STF with heroin. In September this year, he was out on bail. His next hearing was on December 24 and the blast took place on December 23. One of his neighbours reportedly alleged that Gagandeep Singh Gaggi and his accomplices thrashed him as he stopped him for the sale of drugs and liquor in the street.
