SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A reward being offered to help find the person responsible for killing two elderly Sikh men has jumped to $57,000.

It’s been seven months since the men were killed while walking in an Elk Grove neighborhood and still no arrests have been made.

Surinder Singh was 65-years-old and died that day.

Gurmej Atwal was 78-years-old. He died six weeks after the shooting.

On Sunday, volunteers posted new reward signs around the city to try and raise awareness of the crime.

    I sure hope they find the killers , But

    Everybody hates the Police and everybody has a story including friends with stories that have been treated wrongly and unfair by Local Police.

    Nobody will every help the cops because of there treatment of people !

    When was the last time you heard of someone getting a warning instead of a ticket ?

    Cops are about crumbs so they get back what they give !

      Yea! If the killer is lucky, the cop will just give them a warning! Get real! And NO! Everyone does not hate cops.

    Here is the link for the Reward Bulletin that is referred to in the story:

    Please print it out and post it in your car, on your desk, on your cubicle or at a local business. Somewhere in our community is someone that will see the reward and be motivated to do the right thing.

    On behalf of the victims’ families, thank you to everyone for their support.

    I forgot it has been just over a year since these two individuals were shot & killed because of their apperances as Sikhs wearing turbans…It still hurts to see how small minded the Americans are that they don’t know anything about different religons, and also know that Sikhs and Muslims are different…I am partly muslim myself, and Islam isn’t a religon of terrorism…People who call themeselves muslims came into destroy Islam and make the Muslim world look bad, and we as muslims need to stand up and not let these people give us a bad name…I just want to extend my deepest condolences to the famailes of Gurmej Atwal & Surinder SIngh all the way from Toronto, Canada, and hope they find the killer and bring them to justice.
