Cricketer, Jasprit Bumrah’s grandfather’s dead body was found in Sabarmati river by Ahmedabad Fire and Emergency Services on Sunday. It is a very sad news for the cricketer and his family.
His grandfather, who was 84 years old, had apparently come down to meet his grandson but went missing since Friday. The family filed an FIR of his missing at the Vastrapur police station. It was said the family did not allow Santokh Singh, the cricketer’s grandfather to meet him; they did not allow him to even talk to him.
According to the reports, Santokh Singh, on December 1, had come up to his daughter’s house at Sonal Apartment in Vatrapur. He said he wanted to meet his grandson as his birthday was approaching on December 5. But regrettably, he was not able to meet his grandson. It was on December 8 that Santokh Singh called up Balvinder Singh, his son who resides in Jharkhand. He told Balvinder that he is going to meet his late wife.
The police said, Santokh Singh was once a very fruitful and top businessman, but then he saw his business going down the hill after Jasprit’s father and his son’s death. Santokh had seen his grandson on the television playing and he desired to meet him in person and give his blessings, said the sources.
Rajinder, Santokh’s daughter, stated, “We had gone to Daljit Kaur, Jasprit’s mother who is an educator in the city school, but to our surprise, she denied to give permission to my father to meet Jasprit and also she refused to give any contact number of Jasprit. Seeing this behaviour of Daljit, my father was heartbroken. My father had left home on Friday after lunch and after which he never returned.”
She also disclosed, “My father had also called Jasprit’s sister, Juhika”.
When Daljit Kaur was contacted, she said, “I don’t want to talk anything about this matter”.
