Jasmeet Singh, aged 22,originally from Jalandhar, India and living in Manila, was gunned down on Monday.
Jasmeet’s father, 49-year-old Jaswant Singh, a money lender, has been been in a coma since an attack on him four months ago by yet unidentified assailants.
Jasmeet was in Manila studying hotel management at De La Salle University and has been taking care of his father’s money-lending business.
The young Indian had been living in Manila since May 2012. His father had a money lending business in the region for the past 15 years.
Jasmeet’s mother said they received a call at 10pm on Monday about the murder of her son by five unidentified men when he was heading to a market with a friend.
