Auckland attack victim Punjabi’s kin seek NZ visa


MUKTSAR: Malout resident Satpal (26), who was attacked in Auckland (New Zealand) on August 15, is in coma in a hospital there, even as his parents here can’t go abroad as they don’t have passports.

The victim’s brother-in-law, Daljit Singh, a government teacher in Zira subdivision of Ferozepur district, applied online for a visa today. “I appeal to the New Zealand Government to enable me to meet Satpal.”

He added, “I spoke to officials of the Indian High Commission in New Zealand, asking them to help me get a visa. They have promised to do the needful.”

Satpal’s father Ajmer Singh is an ASI, posted at Malout Sadar police station. The youth was reportedly attacked near his residence on the Great South Road, Takanini, Auckland. “His friends there are not aware about the motive. The picture might become clear once I reach there,” said Daljit, who is married to Satpal’s sister.
