A 20-year-old youth, Rahul Handa, resident of Sodhal, Jalandhar, died in a road accident in Canada. As soon as the news of the son's death was heard, there was silence in the family and the parents were in bad condition, crying.

Family members told that Rahul had gone to Canada on study visa only six months ago. The family hoped that after studying in Canada, he would settle there and take care of the family. As soon as the mother heard the news of her son's death, she started crying badly. Other family members are trying to console but the parents are not in a position to say anything.
