Take Action In Elk Grove

The murderer(s) of the suspected hate crime against Surinder Singh and Gurmej Singh Atwal are still at large. Both elderly men were walking on their daily afternoon walk in Sacramento, when they were shot in a drive by shooting on March 4th, 2011. Seven months later and they are still looking for clues.

If in the Sacramento area, please join the Jakara Movement and the local community as they blanket the neighborhood talking to the community and posting reward bulletins. For more information and to RSVP, please visit the facebook page.

  1. Thanks for the posting the note. One of the organizers of the Day of Action sent out an informational e-mail of the event, and I thought I’d post it here:

    Gurmej Singh Atwal and Surinder Singh were shot and murdered in Elk Grove, California on March 4, 2011. The elderly Sikhs were peacefully walking in their own neighborhood when they were attacked. The criminals have not been found. Law enforcement authorities need our assistance.

    On October 16, 2011 at 9:45am, we will start a ‘Day of Action’ near the site of the murders. Volunteers will gather for a short meeting before going out to local stores and neighborhoods to post reward bulletins. We hope to bring increased awareness to the crimes. Somewhere, there is a witness that has information that can help bring justice to the victims’ families and the community. Please come assist us for a short time and encourage others to join our efforts. We need your help.

    A flyer regarding the ‘Day of Action’ is available at this link [https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D352548_6290605_722753]. You may also learn more at our Facebook page [https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=149925785103265]. Please indicate your attendance via Facebook or email me directly. Thank you for your support.

  2. I havent seen this in the news anywhere. Not even on CNN. That’s crazy. They’re just walking down the street and they get shot?

    9/11 was almost 10 years ago. I thought they had clamped down on the post 9/11 racial attacks?
