One of the Labour Party’s South East candidates for May’s European Elections has been killed in a terrorist attack abroad.
Del Singh was one of 21 people killed in a Kabul restaurant after it was subjected to a bomb and gun attack in the Afghan capital last Friday.
The 39 year-old Southampton man had stated his working life in Eastleigh working alongside his Mum at the Kipling (Prices) bakery and later at Mother’s Pride
Mr. Singh spoke to Eastleigh News last year when he started his MEP Election campaign in the town centre by setting up a pitch outside Ukip’s former Market Street HQ.
The international Development Specialist supported a number of local charity projects and had worked many of the world’s trouble spots helping to deliver aid.
Labour leader Ed Miliband paid tribute to Mr. Singh saying:
“My thoughts – and the thoughts of the whole Labour Party – are with the family and friends of Del Singh.”
