Report: Slain West Chester man’s brother expected to see him this week in India

Hakiakat Singh Pannag and Parmjit Kaur, two of the shooting victims in West Chester Twp.'s quadruple homicide on Sunday, were set to arrive today in India to visit Pannag's brother, according to the Hindustan Times.

“We are totally in the dark,” Harbans Singh, Pannag’s brother, told the Indian news outlet. “Don’t know how it happened and who is behind it? I just know that I have lost my brother.”

West Chester Police found Hakiakat Singh Pannag, 59, and his wife, Parmjit Kaur, 62, in their apartment at 4562 Wyndtree Drive with their daughter, Shalinderjit Kaur, 39 and Parmjit Kaur’s sister, Amarjit Kaur, 58, Sunday evening with gunshot wounds in the Wyndtree Drive apartment in the Lakefront at West Chester complex.

West Chester Police Chief Joel Herzog said the four homicides are not hate crimes but said they were not random shootings.

Hakiakat Singh Pannag and Parmjit Kaur visited Punjab, India last year. Parmjit Kaur’s nephew, Jashandeep Singh, told the Hindustan Times his aunt was “looking forward to visiting India.”


He was to pick up his aunt and uncle, but was told of their deaths the day prior.

Harbans Singh told the Hindustan Times his brother came to the United States about 40 years ago “and was living happily. I don’t know much about his work and life style in the U.S., but in India, he is cordial with relatives and friends. Everyone is in shock.”

Harbans Singh said he doesn’t know who will cremate his family members in the United States or would return the bodies to India.
