ANEIL Sanghera, then 28, of Richmond was arrested in June 2017 and charged with manslaughter in the death of his cousin, Pardeep “Terry” Dulay, 41, of Richmond.
As reported in The VOICE, detectives from the Vancouver Police’s Major Crime Section made the arrest following an investigation into Dulay’s death at a wedding celebration. Around 11:30 p.m. on April 15, police and the BC Ambulance Service were called to Fraserview Hall in South Vancouver after Dulay was found dead by party guests.
It originally appeared that Dulay had died of natural causes, but information collected at the scene showed the victim had been involved in a physical altercation just before his death.
This week, Sanghera pleaded guilty to manslaughter before BC Supreme Court Justice Margot Fleming who ensured that the plea was informed, voluntary and unequivocal.
There was a lot of tension between the members of the families of the guilty and the victim at the court with sheriffs keeping the two sides apart.
Sanghera will next appear in court on January 22 when a date for sentencing will be decided.
