CHANDI­GARH/TORONTO: Hardev Singh, head of the Ni­rankari Mis­sion, was killed in a road ac­ci­dent in Canada on Fri­day. He was 62.

Hardev Singh, son of as­sas­si­nated Ni­rankari head Gur­bachan Singh, was in Canada to at­tend spir­i­tual meet­ings. A Ni­rankari In­ter­na­tional Sa­m­agam (NIS) was sched­uled to be held in June in Toronto in Canada.

The ac­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 7pm in the Mon­treal sub­urb of Beauharnois. Hardev Singh’s ve­hi­cle hit a ditch and over­turned. Sgt. In­grid As­selin, spokesper­son for the provin­cial po­lice, Surete de Que­bec, said, “There was no col­li­sion. It was just one car and the driver ap­peared to have lost con­trol.” There were four pas­sen­gers in the car. While Hardev Singh was de­clared dead at the lo­cal hos­pi­tal, the other oc­cu­pant of the rear seat suf­fered from sev­eral in­juries while those in front had mi­nor in­juries.
