A compassionate bystander called the ambulance , assuming this was an accident when she saw him lying on the road.Please click here for the entire text of the article.
Mr. Singh was taken to the local hospital by ambulance and released that same day. He could not walk and get up and was taken back to hospital on Jan 24th and found to have a pelvic fracture. He stayed in the Hospital until January 28 th. He says that many other Sikh elders have been facing unwanted ridicule at by ignorant people. So far no arrests have been made.... Mr. Singh has lived in US for nearly a decade and loves biking. He is a simple and pious man , belonging to the Namdhari sect of Sikhs. He says he has changed his style of tying turban since 9/11 to avoid any confusion with the style of turbans worn by people in Middle East.
