  • Sikh Man Stabbed To Death In California After Refusing To Sell Cigarettes

Sukhwinder Singh, another clerk at the store, said the victim got into an altercation with a customer after the latter refused to show his ID after asking to buy cigarettes.

Jagjeet Singh had been living in the United States for the past 18 months with his sister and brother-in-law.

"Paramedics responded because an employee had collapsed and they thought this to be a medical issue", said officer Eric Schuller with Modesto police to Fox40. The man reportedly left the store in a fury, mouthing racist abuses and warning Singh of dire consequences. The entire sequence was captured by a CCTV camera installed in the store premises, said the report.

After about 30 minutes, when Singh was about to close the store, the buyer returned, enraged, and stabbed him. Singh was promptly rushed to the hospital where he succumbed to death after fighting for his life for 9 hours.

Modesto police hasn't yet made any official statement about the murderer or his motive.
