Balwinder Singh, father of the deceased, was inconsolable while his (Balwinderís) brother Surinder Singh and brothers-in-law Harvinder Singh and Sukhwinder Singh were consoling him.

The deceasedís friend Ravinder Singh brought the coffin from Paris via New Delhi by an Air India flight.

Another friend Sukhchain Singh, who was present at the time of the incident, came from his native place in Kapurthala to receive the body. Narrating the eyewitness account, he said four of them - Rajinder, Amrik Singh, Bhinda and him - were returning home by metro on that fateful day. He said the Arabian youth was misbehaving with a fellow girl passenger tor which Rajinder objected.

He recalled that as soon as Rajinder alighted from the train the Arab youth pushed him on the tracks and he came into contact with live electric wires and died. He said they could not intervene as everything happened so fast.

Surinder Singh, deceasedís uncle, said Rajinder had gone to France about six years ago when he was 20 yearsí old. Son of an ex-serviceman, Rajinder was a keen kabaddi player in the village. He was working as a delivery man.

Hoshiarpurís Naib Tehsildar Harkaran Singh was among the persons who came to receive the body at the airport.
