    Family of the late Manmeet Sharma

    The President of Federation of Indian Communities of Queensland Mr Palanichamy Thevar JP has contacted my office today inviting me to meet with family of the late Manmeet Sharma, who are visiting from India.

    I would be honoured to meet with them next week and reaffirm my Government’s commitment to continue to work with the Indian community following the tragic death of Manmeet.

    In his email to my office today, Mr Thevar said: “I thank the State Government support from day one.

    See link to a joint statement from my Government and the Indian community last year following the tragedy http://statements.qld.gov.au/Statement/2016/11/6/joint-statement-queensland-government-and-queensland-indian-community

    Criminal proceedings in relation Manmeet’s death are continuing and neither I nor representatives of the Government will make any comment that may jeopardise those proceedings.
