Jasknwal Rana's father, Tarsam Singh (75), was a prominent person in Huddersfield's Sikh community.
London: Jasknwal Rana, an Indian origin former teacher, in the north England town of Huddersfield has been remanded in custody for allegedly killing his father.
Rana's father, Tarsam Singh (75), was a prominent person in Huddersfield's Sikh community.
Rana, 32, appeared in Huddersfield Magistrates' Court this week accused of manslaughter. He was remanded in custody until May 16 when he will appear at Bradford Crown Court.
Police and paramedics were called to the house of Tarsam Singh on Friday.
Officers sealed off the area while an ambulance crew rushed the injured man to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, but he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Singh leaves behind his widow Gurmit Kaur Rana. Besides their son, the couple have three daughters. Singh was originally from the Punjab in India and
moved to Huddersfield in the 1960s to work in the mills. He went on to work as a Punjabi interpreter at Huddersfield Magistrates' Court.
Singh served as the treasurer and registrar of Fartown Temple for 10 years, and helped raise funds for the new temple building in 1997.
Paying tributes, temple trustee Jagat Singh Lalli said, "He worked for the community and the temple for a long while. He was a well-respected member of the community. He used to donate the money he got for being a registrar to the temple."
Lalli, 77, who knew the deceased 45 years, said, "It was a great shock when I heard that he had died. I am concerned for his wife now that her husband has died."
