Punjabi musician goes missing in Canada

Toronto, Dec 17 (IANS) A Punjabi musician from India visiting Canada has disappeared here.

Thirty-year-old Lehmber Singh, who was to take his flight back to India on evening of November 5, went missing that morning. He has not been heard of since then.

According to police, Lehmber Singh had come from India to perform music. He had about $10,000 with him when he went missing from Mississauga on the outskirts of Toronto. How he managed to get so much money is baffling.

In a statement , police said, “On November 5, 2015, Lehmber Singh was last seen by a family relative at approximately 10:30 a.m., in the area of Derry Road East and Edwards Boulevard in the City of Mississauga.”

It is not unusual for musicians, singers and preachers from India to disappear in Canada.

It is easier to get a Canadian visa if you are a singer, musician or a preacher and are sponsored by any Indo-Canadian organization, temple or gurdwara. But once these people are in Canada, many simply disappear as they don’t want to return to India.
