The fundraising page was set up to raise money for Sahi’s funeral expenses and for sending his body back to India.

The page created on Saturday had raised more than $18,000 by the evening.

Rupinder Kaur, the wife of Sahi’s cousin told the Los Angeles-based KTLA5 news that Sahi’s family in India will be left homeless since he was the sole breadwinner of the household.

“In the short time he was in California, he never argued with anyone and never raised his voice. He quietly did all the work his boss told him and he never complained,” the fundraising page says.

Meanwhile, KTLA5 reported that authorities were still seeking the robber, who got away on foot with an unknown amount of cash.  (Agency)
