Canadian police reported last week that 40-year-old Harpreet Kaur Gill was stabbed by Navinder Gill on December 7 in Surrey.
The police in British Columbia, Canada, have announced that a 40-year-old Sikh man has been charged with second-degree murder for the stabbing death of his wife. According to a statement released by Canadian authorities last week, Navinder Gill has been charged with the stabbing death of Harpreet Kaur Gill, 40, on December 7 in Surrey. As a result of many stab wounds, Harpreet Kaur Gill was in critical condition when police arrived at her house on December 7 in response to a stabbing incident.
She was taken to the hospital immediately, but she passed away there from her wounds. The accused, who was revealed to be the victim’s husband, was arrested at the scene and held as a suspect by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), according to the statement, but was released the next day as investigations continued.
IHIT investigators, with the help of the Surrey RCMP, reportedly apprehended him again on December 15 and charged him with second-degree murder the following day. Since the beginning of the year, three Canadians of Indian descent have been slain in three distinct incidents across the country.
On the 3rd of December in the Canadian province of Ontario, a young Sikh woman named Pawanpreet Kaur was murdered in a “targeted” shooting. The same day, in the Canadian state of Alberta, a 24-year-old Sikh man of Indian descent was shot and killed. Mehakpreet Sethi, 18, of Indian descent, was fatally stabbed in a British Columbia high school parking lot in November.
