On Saturday morning, the family got the news of their son's death, prompting sadness in the community of Chichewal. At the same time, the family is demanding the body to be returned to India as soon as possible.
Jagroop Singh, from Amritsar's Chichewal village, had migrated to America 5 months ago. To send him overseas, his family had taken out an Rs 18 lakh loan. When the study visa arrived, the entire family was incredibly happy, but an unexpected event took place. Jagroop had fallen asleep in his room and did not wake up the next morning.
The young man who lived with him took him to the hospital and soon after he was declared dead. On Saturday, his fellow mates called the Alsabuh family in America to notify them of Jagroop's death. It's still unclear what caused the death. It is still not clear how the death occurred. Was there a fight or he was sick.
