MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The son of a slain Sikh leader in Wisconsin has taken his father's ashes to India, where they will be sprinkled into a holy river as part of the grieving process.
Amardeep Kaleka spoke with Wisconsin Public Radio from the Indian state of Punjab on Wednesday morning. He said he had with him the ashes of his father, Satwant Singh Kaleka.
He says the ashes will be poured into a river that flows toward the Ganges River. Hindus and Sikhs believe the river is holy, and that pouring a loved one's ashes into it brings the loved one closer to heaven.
The elder Kaleka was one of six Sikhs killed when a white supremacist opened fire at their temple in August.
