Indian Cricketer Jasprit Bumrah’s grandfather’s dead body found in Sabarmati river.
It is a really sad news for the Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah as his grandfather, late Santokh Singh’s, dead body has been found by the Ahmedabad Fire and Emergency Services in the Sabarmati river on this Sunday. The 84-year-old grandfather had reportedly come to meet his grandson but he has been missing since Friday. An FIR had also been filed about him being missing by his family members at the Vastrapur police station. Bumrah’s family had also allegedly denied Santok Singh from meeting or talking to the pacer.
According to a report in Ahmedabad Mirror, the complaint stated that Santokh Singh had shown up at his daughter’s residence at Sonal Apartments in Vastrapur, precisely on December 1 where he expressed a desire to meet his grandson on his birthday which is on December 5. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to meet his grandson Jasprit. Following which on December 8, Santokh Singh called his son Balvinder Singh, who lives in Jharkhand and told him that he was now leaving to meet his deceased wife.”
According to the police, Santokh Singh, who was now driving an autorickshaw for his livelihood in the lanes of Uttarakhand, was once upon a time a really successful businessman who had the misfortune of seeing his business go downhill after the death of his son (Jasprit’s father). Sources have further claimed that Santokh Singh had seen Jasprit on television and now he wanted to meet his grandson.
Santokh Singh’s daughter Rajinder had told a leading newspaper that when they went to meet Jasprit’s mother Daljit Kaur at a city school where she is a teacher, she refused to allow their father any contact with Jasprit. She even refused to share Jasprit Bhumra’s phone number so that the grandfather could talk to him. She said that her father was grief-stricken by all of this, due to which, he left home on Friday afternoon to never return back.”
Jasprit’s mother refused to comment.
She also told the leading daily that her father had called Jasprit’s sister Juhika. Meanwhile, when a newspaper contacted Daljit Kaur, she said that she did not wish to talk on this matter at all.
This is indeed a really tough and testing time for Jasprit Bumrah and his family. We offer our condolences to the family and pray for Bumrah and his family to be able to have the necessary strength to be able to cope with this loss.
