TEXAS: Sikh policeman described by senior officers as a “trailblazer”, has been shot and killed during a traffic stop in Texas.

Sandeep Dhaliwal, who had been an officer for ten years, was fatally injured after being shot from behind when he pulled over a vehicle in the Houston area.

“He was a hero, a respected member of the community, and he was a trailblazer,” Houston County sheriff Ed Gonzalez said at a press conference. “He wore the turban. He represented his community with integrity, respect and pride And again, he was respected by all.”

Houston mayor Sylvester Turner said: “He was a walking lesson in tolerance and understanding, which are values Houstonians uphold here in the nation’s most diverse big city.”
