Family collects Karpal Singh’s ashes

GEORGE TOWN: Family members of Karpal Singh collected his ashes from the Batu Gantong crematorium here on Monday morning.

The family, who arrived at the crematorium at about 8.30am, had requested the media not to photograph the event.

Karpal’s eldest son Jagdeep Singh Deo, who is also Datuk Keramat assemblyman, had appealed to the media to give the family members space.

“I hope you respect not just us but Karpal,” he said.

Karpal’s ashes will be scattered in the sea today, at an undisclosed spot.
