"We received this news very suddenly that he has been shot. He has two children, who have no one to look after them. The most painful part would be if justice is not brought to his killers, if that does not happen this means that the government is a failure. Today Rupesh has gone, the government needs to see what can happen for his children. The government should give them a government job, they should see what can happen for them after he was murdered so brutally," said the brother.
