This week, our community has been shattered by the sudden loss of Mobile Patrol Officer – 25-year-old Ramandeep Singh, leaving behind a broken family and a community in mourning. For his parents, he wasn’t just a son; he was their only son, the pride of their lives.
His death serves as a reminder of the risks our security personnel face every day when they go to work.
Born and raised in the village of Kotli Shahpur in Gurdaspur, Ramandeep had dreams that extended beyond the borders of his homeland. In 2018, with aspirations for higher education, he moved to New Zealand. His easy going nature and genuine smile warmed the hearts of all he met.
A Loss Felt Far and Wide:
The pain of his loss ripples across continents. Where he once made a daily telephone call to his family in Kotli Shahpur, India there is now silence. His village mourns one of its brightest stars, while New Zealand grapples with the senselessness of it all.
Honouring Ramandeep’s Memory:
