Our beloved son, Manpreet Kanhaiya (Manny) passed away on 30 September, 2015 in the city of Lodz, Poland. His death is still a mystery. He was 1st Year student of 5 year DMD program in the Medical University of Lodz. He moved in brand new dormitory on 28 September, 2015 which opened to business on the same day. We were told by property management that he accidently fell from his 4th floor room’s window on 28-29 September night. Paramedics took him to the Kopernik Hospital where he breathed his last on 30 Sep, 2015. He was cremated on 17 October, 2015 in Brampton Crematorium and Visitation Centre, Brampton (Canada). Last prayer was held in Glidden Road Sikh Temple, Brampton on the same day.
Manpreet was a great student, friendly, humble and full of life. He left us with 22 years 7 months and 24 days worth of unforgettable memories. His untimely death is a great loss to our family, his friends and nation.
Comments from his high school teacher;
“Our deepest condolences on the loss of your son/brother Manny. We remember Manny as an excellent student. He was excellent in many ways: very bright, good friend to his peers, and always extremely polite. We each had good conversations with Manny and he was most definitely an extremely caring and sincere young man – truly a class act. May the memories you have help you find peace at this time of sorrow and loss.”
At present, investigation is ongoing in Poland which may take couple of months to complete. We are waiting for the autopsy report which will be released soon.
Our family would like to thank Canadian Embassy in Warsaw to provide timely help and guidance.
We would have to hire a good English speaking lawyer and an investigator from Poland for proper investigation to find the truth.
