According to his relatives, Karunkar who lived in Fairfield was admitted to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treatment of the Bullet Injuries he suffered. He suffered two bullet injuries. The victim, succumbed to the injuries in December 8. Fairfield police have asked the public to identify two suspects.
The culprits had entered the mart at Dixie Highway at 10 pm. Reports said that one of the two suspects had a gun and shot at Karunkar. Police said the culprits, after robbing cash, fled from the scene.
Karunakar’s relative Mahesh has described the culprits as ‘merciless armed robbers’ in a GoFundMe memorial he started to raise funds on behalf of his sister Vijaya, and Nephew Aniket who live in India.
“My brother-in-law was very hard working and a considerate person. He was a loving husband and a devoted father. Due to various circumstances he incurred financial debt in India because of which he travelled to the U.S a few years ago to try and make enough money to clear his debt, support his family in India, give them a better life and especially for their only Son’s education and future. He was working 7 days a week almost 12 hours a day to make ends meet,” he said.
He said his nephew Aniket was a smart kid with a promising future and deserves support. He is now in 12th standard and is just about to start understanding the surroundings.
“This unexpected and unforeseen incident made my brother-in-law a victim of crime and deprived abruptly his family a source of income which was and is sole basis of the future of my sister and her son,” he said.
“Although this gofundme project may never help them get over this irreversible loss of life but, it aims to help them recover a bit from sudden financial burdens. This memorial fund will primarily help my sister who has been home-maker till date with funeral costs, pay for my nephew’s education, and hopefully provide a shimmer of hope in this grieving condition. I need help from you, your friends and family who believe in my cause. No contribution is small and every little bit helps. No words can express my gratitude for your time and contribution,” he said.
