India Hopes Probe into Attacks on Indians Will Yield Results: Kaur

As the body of Ranjodh Singh, who was killed in Australia last month, was brought back to India, Minister of State for External Affairs Praneet Kuar has said that India is hopeful that ‘something will come out’ from the investigations into attacks on Indians, reported PTI.

Ranjodh’s body was brought in a Thai Airways flight from Bangkok and was received by his younger brother Satnam Singh and his family members with the minister accompanying them at the IGI Airport, said report.

“We are hopeful that something will come out from the investigations that are taking place on the attacks on Indians in Australia,” Kaur, who placed a wreath on Singh’s body, was quoted as saying.

Kaur said that External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and his Australian counterpart Stpehen Smith had met in London on Thursday and that a high-level Working Group has been set up by the Australian government to deal with the issue on an urgent basis, said report.

She informed that the committee is going to meet on Saturday and Sunday to discuss the matter, report said.

Kaur termed the attacks on Indians as ‘unfortunate’, adding, “It is not acceptable and the Indian government will do whatever is required”.

She also said that Australia, being a sovereign nation, is also doing its part.

“As you know we have put out an advisory asking students not to go to Australia for studies,” Kaur was quoted as saying.

Singh’s mortal remains were taken to his native place Nabha in Punjab for last rites, with his relatives and Punjab government officials accompanying the body, said report.

Satnam Singh demanded that the Indian government pressurise Australia to bring the guilty in his brother’s murder to book.
