Ludhiana (August 07, 2012): Many sections of International media have reported that the man who killed six Sikhs in a terror strike at a Sikh Gurudwara Sahib in USA was 40-year-old ex-Army soldier.

“Sources identified the dead suspect as Wade Michael Page, who was at one time attached to the Fort Bragg Army installation in North Carolina. Local authorities have scheduled a 10 a.m. press conference, where more details may emerge about Page and what the FBI is treating as an act of domestic terrorism in the temple, in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek. Six people were killed and four wounded, including a police officer, before the man being identified as Page was shot dead by a police officer” reports the Fox News.

According to media reports Sunday’s terror striker Wade Michael Page was enlisted in April 1992 in United States Army and was discharged from the Army in 1998 “under honorable conditions,” which is less than honorable discharge.

Reuters reported that the discharge was for “patterns of misconduct,” including being drunk on duty.

“Page was a “frustrated neo-Nazi” who led a racist white supremacist band, the Southern Poverty Law Center said Monday. Page told a white supremacist website in an interview in 2010 that he had been part of the white-power music scene since 2000 when he left his native Colorado and the started the band, End Apathy, in 2005, the non-profit civil rights organization said” reports PressDemocrat.Com.

There is no clear statement in media regarding the motive of terror striker.
