Brampton: South Asian murder-suicide case

PEEL Regional Police investigators from the Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau are investigating the death of a 27-year-old woman that occurred in Brampton.

On Monday, December 9, at 2:08 p.m., police responded to a residential area near Eagle Ridge Drive and Bighorn Crescent in Brampton for a medical call.

Officers found Sharanjeet Kaur, 27, from Toronto, dead within the residence.

Navdeep Singh, a 35-year-old man from Brampton, was also located dead within the residence. It has been determined that Navdeep Singh caused the death of  Sharanjeet Kaur and then took his own life.  At this time, investigators are not seeking any further suspects and this investigation is ongoing.

(A report in India’s Tribune newspaper said that Sharanjeet Kaur was originally from Bhandhala village near Noormahal in Jalandhar,  while Navdeep Singh was originally from Khilchian village in Amritsar. ” Sharanjit was a permanent resident while Navdeep had applied for “shelter” in Canada,” the newspaper reported.)

At a press conference, police said that they could confirm the two had been in an intimate relationship in the past, but they didn’t believe they were still involved in an intimate relationship.

According to police, there was no history with domestic issues, and both were not known to police. Also, there were no warning signs that police were aware of.

Sharanjeet Kaur was reported missing to Toronto Police on Sunday. They were able to track her movement by phone. Peel Regional Police were called to the residence on Bighorn Crescent not on the missing person report, but for the medical issue.

Police do not believe she was abducted.

Sharanjeet Kaur is Peel Region’s 13th homicide resulting from domestic violence in 2019 and the 27th homicide.
