Indo-Canadian radio host’s life threatened

The talk-show host at a Punjabi-language radio station in Vancouver received a death threat hours after a drive-by shooting at the home of the station manager. Gurpreet Singh, who opens the phone lines to listeners of Radio India six mornings a week, received the threat Monday in the mail. In the two-page letter, written in Punjabi, the writers threaten to shoot Mr. Singh in broad daylight.
“We won’t rest now … we are waiting for an opportunity,” the letter writers say.
Mr. Singh is accused in the letter of being “a traitor” to Sikhs.
