New Delhi [India], Sep 1 (ANI): Former India batsman Suresh Raina on Tuesday finally broke his silence on the passing away of his uncle in Punjab terming the incident as horrible. Raina’s uncle was killed in an alleged attack by robbers in the Pathankot district of Punjab. The left-handed batsman also said that one of his cousins passed away on Monday after being attacked by the robbers.
Raina tweeted that what happened to his family in Punjab was beyond horrible, his uncle was slaughtered to death, his bua (aunt) & both his cousins had severe injuries. He added that unfortunately, his cousin also passed away last night after battling for life for days, his bua was still very very critical and was on life support.
Raina further said that his family is still not aware as to who was behind this attack. He has requested the Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to look into the matter. He said that till date, they don’t know what had exactly happened that night & who did this.
Till date we don’t know what exactly had happened that night & who did this. I request @PunjabPoliceInd to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them. Those criminals should not be spared to commit more crimes. @capt_amarinder @CMOPb
