OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - The former president of the Oak Creek Sikh Temple of Wisconsin is having his ashes buried in a holy river in India.

Satwant Singh Kaleka was one of six people killed last August, as he tried to stop Wade Michael Page from carrying out his shooting rampage at the Oak Creek temple.

On Wednesday, Kaleka’s son Amardeep told Wisconsin Public Radio from Punjab, India that he was about pour his father’s ashes into a river that flows toward the Ganges River.

Sikhs and Hindus believe the river is holy – and it brings a loved one closer to Heaven when the person’s ashes are poured into it.
