“Sai was a loving person to many, a sacrificing friend and a beautiful soul. With his sudden untimely passing away, his family members are having very hard time both mentally and financially. Nothing can replace his presence, his love. As friends and well-wishers, we have the opportunity to offer our financial support and we are trying our best to accompany what we can. His parents and sister will be 100% beneficiaries of this fundraiser,” they said. Over $50,000 contributions have poured in from different quarters out of the target of $1,80,000.

Narendruni had moved to the US to pursue his higher studies. He went to Cleveland State University where he had taken up his Master’s in Information Systems. He had reportedly gone shopping with his friends to buy some things as he intended to pay a visit to India to his family 10 days ago.
