On March 4, 2011, Surinder Singh and Gurmej Atwal, two elderly Sikh friends, were out on their regular afternoon walk in Elk Grove, California, when they were shot in a drive-by shooting in broad daylight on residential street. Both men tragically died and the area’s Sikh and Elk Grove community were left reeling by the attacks.

The murders of these innocent men is suspected to be a hate crime. To date, no suspects have been found and the crime is unsolved.

More than seven months after Surinder Singh and Gurmej Atwal were shot, a “Day of Action” is being organized in Elk Grove, California near the scene of the murders on Sunday, October 16, 2011:
