"He was a father of a little girl. He was the sole bread winner for his family consisting of aged parents, a wife, daughter and five younger siblings," said Marjan.

“He was the only son for his parents. The rest of the siblings are all sisters. He was sending money for their education too. I don’t know what will happen to the family. I am sad and shocked. It is a very sad day for me," said Marjan.
