The Union Housing and Urban Affairs minister said the perpetrators of the heinous attack have to be brought to justice.
Puri on Twitter said the mortalremains of Singh were brought back to India due to timely and tireless efforts of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, Indian Ambassador to Afghanistan Vinay Kumar and other MEA officials.

The minister said "these unfortunate deaths and the impunity of these attacks are a grim reminder of the persecution which religious minorities face in some countries in our neighbourhood".
"... the world needs to act now. The perpetrators of this heinous attack have to be brought to justice," Puri said.
On March 25, the terrorist attack on a gurudwara in Afghanistan's capital city of Kabul had killed 25 people and injured eight.
