The bereaved family of Manjot Singh, along with his father Karamjit Singh, revealed the circumstances surrounding his demise. They recounted that Amandeep Singh, Manjot's cousin residing in Canada, received the distressing call from the local police, notifying them of the tragic incident.

Notably, Bringing Manjot's remains back to Punjab incurs a substantial cost, estimated between 18 to 20 lakh rupees. Hailing from a middle-class family, the Singhs had financed their son's education abroad through significant loans. Now, grappling with the financial strain, they are struggling to gather the required funds to repatriate their son's body. Desperately seeking assistance, they have issued an appeal to social service organizations, the Punjab government, and the Government of India, imploring for support in the repatriation process, ensuring their son's dignified return to Punjab.
