Clutching a framed photograph of murder victim Jagtar Gill to her chest, Gurpreet Kaur Chahal was in tears as she walked into the Sikh temple on Friday.

“The community is shaken at this incident. How did it happen? Why did it happen? Everybody’s scared in their own home, because we’re not safe in our home. It happened in broad daylight,” said Chahal.

An estimated 300 people gathered to remember Gill on Friday; first at a private service at a Nepean funeral home, followed by a prayer gathering at a nearby Sikh temple.
