Jai

The eldest of 10 children, Kemraj Singh served as the father figure of the Singh household. The first commercial airline pilot in the village, the BWIA Captain and entrepreneur was well-loved in Kelly Village by all, and devoutly admired by his young sister, Prematie, whom he would go on to groom into adulthood through teaching her values, supporting her education, and assisting her in becoming a qualified pharmacist. They led what seemed like the perfect life, until one night in 1988 when there was a break-in at the Singh house, and Kemraj was tragically murdered.
