Slain shopkeeper Arun Kumar was cremated today as hundreds of mourners gathered to remember him.

"You were always by the side of your loved ones," daughter Sheenal said in a tribute read before hundreds of mourners at Arun's memorial service in Wiri this afternoon.

The Kumars' closeness and strong sense of duty were evident in Sheenal's tribute.

"We missed out on the opportunity and the honour of taking care of you in our older years," she said. "It saddens us both that we won't have that opportunity and we won't be able to give you what you gave your parents," she added.
