Location of incident: Manurewa.

Incident type: Operation Riverton; Media release of behalf of Singh family

Thursday 12th June 2008 Media Release on behalf of the family of Mr Navtej SINGH

We want to thank the community for their support to us and to the Police. We are extremely thankful to the people of Randwick Park for all their support in this difficult time. We would also like to thank all the people that feel for us. We are also thankful to the media for all their support. The family is trying to cope with two deaths now and they are grieving and speechless.

We are now trying to come to terms with the sad situation and Navtej's eldest daughter has just seen her dad in this state for the first time. We are pleased with the outcome of the police enquiry and the charging of the people involved and we are confident that we will get justice. We will follow Sikh rituals at the Takanini Sikh Temple on this coming Sunday for Navtej's Peace in Heaven. We would appreciate if media would leave the family to grieve today.
