Chennai Super Kings all-rounder has written to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amrinder Singh and the Punjab Police seeking help in the investigation of his uncle's death in Pathankot.
The cricketer tweeted, "What happened to my family was beyond horrible. My uncle was slaughtered to death, my bua and both my cousins had severe injuries. Unfortunately my cousin also passed away after battling for life for days. My bua is still very critical and is on life support."
He further tweeted, "Till date we don't know what exactly had happened that night and who did this. I request Punjab Police to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them. Those criminals should not be spared to commit more crimes. Captain Amrinder Singh."
Till date we don’t know what exactly had happened that night & who did this. I request @PunjabPoliceInd to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them.
