DELTA Police’s “Unsolved” website features two unsolved homicide cases and one of them is that of Sukhwinder Dhaliwal who was shot dead in 2009.

On Friday, Delta Police emailed a link of the website to media to bring up the case again.

Dhaliwal was born in India and immigrated to Canada in 1996. He enjoyed playing sports such as kabaddi and wrestling and when not playing sports, he participated in outdoor activities such as boating and 4 wheeling. He also loved driving his Camaro.







On March 2, 2009 at approximately 6:40 p.m., Delta Police responded to a 911 call of shots fired and a man down in the 11800-block of Highway 10. Upon arrival at the crime scene, police located one male, later identified as Sukhwinder – shot to death underneath the overpass next to his 2005 Cadillac STS.

Witnesses in the area, located by police, had heard the shots but did not see the murder take place. A Chrysler 300 was seen speeding away by one of the witnesses from the area moments after the shooting took place, but the occupants were not visible. Shell casings were located at the scene where Sukhwinder’s body was found next to his Cadillac.

Delta Police say that it has been over eight years since Dhaliwal’s murder. His family was devastated and are looking for answers. Although Dhaliwal was known to associate with other criminals, the motive surrounding his murder is not clear. Following an exhaustive police investigation, investigators are hopeful that your assistance could make a difference. If you have any information at all that you can share, please contact us. Help Delta Police bring the criminal(s) to justice and bring closure to the family and friends of the victim.
