ONTARIO’S Peel Regional Police, in partnership with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA), executed an outstanding warrant for a man wanted by Bakersfield Police Department in California for accessory after the fact to murder, and unlawful sexual intercourse involving an underage person (two counts).
In March, community members provided information to investigators regarding a man they believed was wanted for offences that occurred in the U.S. It is alleged that the male illegally entered Canada after removing a GPS monitoring device and was in hiding.
Community members observed this male residing in the City of Brampton and reported him to authorities. Peel Regional Police’s 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau commenced an investigation in conjunction with the US Marshal Service, Bakersfield Police Department and the CBSA.
On Friday, March 19, officers attended a residence in Brampton with the assistance of CBSA. Bakhshinderpal Singh Mann, a 26-year-old man, was arrested on an outstanding warrant and was extradited to the United States.
“Thanks to the invaluable assistance of the Peel Regional Police. The Bakersfield Police Department is thankful to our federal and international partners, including the Peel Regional Police Service, for their professionalism and diligence, and we look forward to continuing that relationship after the extradition proceedings,” said Sgt. Robert Pair, Bakersfield Police Department.
According to turnto23.com, the 2019 case involved the murder of a newborn by Beant Kaur Dhillon in which Mann had fathered a child with his younger cousin, the daughter of Dhillon. Dhillon was accused of drowning her own grandson just hours after he was born in 2018.
Dhillon’s daughter testified that she hid her pregnancy from her parents and gave birth alone in a bathtub in the family’s home. The daughter said she does not know what happened that night after she gave birth and did not find out about the infant’s death until months later, reported turnto23.com.
