Description: "08/02/1981: Three Caucasian individuals beat and kicked 29 year old Khuspal Singh Gill, an East Indian Sikh, on his way to work in Vancouver, B.C. Gill died from his injuries. The police spokesman said that the murder was not racially motivated because Gill's wallet was missing and his pockets were turned inside out. Police posted a $10,000 reward in connection to the murder. Other rewards totaled $22,000. Rallies on October 4 and October 17 in the area where Gill was killed were sponsored by the B.C. Organization to Fight Racists and Fascist Violence. Four men were charged in connection with the murder."
