A pall of gloom descended on Jandwal, the native village of Vikram Jaryal, who was shot dead in US' Washington state.
26-year-old Vikram was shot dead, allegedly by two masked armed robbers, at a convenience store of a gas station on 6 April.
He was working as a clerk in the store at AM-PM Gas Station in Yakima city of Washington, and was behind the counter when two people in masks went in and robbed the store.
He was later taken to the hospital where he died.
After the tragic news of Vikram's murder reached his village here, several locals reached his house at village Jandwal on Mukerian-Pathankot national highway to console the bereaved family.
They could not believe that Vikram, who had left for USA around 22 days back, was no more.
