Gurmeet Singh, a close family friend and Sandhu’s roommate, penned heartfelt words on a GoFundMe page dedicated to supporting the grieving family, describing Sandhu as the cherished son of his parents and a loving sibling to two sisters.

The GoFundMe campaign endeavors to raise funds to repatriate Sandhu’s remains to India and extend financial assistance to his mourning family.
