GURTARN “Tarn” Sandhu, 27, has been charged with manslaughter in the stabbing death of Jaspreet “Jesse” Dhaliwal, 36, in Surrey.
On Sunday, March 26, just after 6 a.m., the Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing in the 17000-block of 57th Avenue. When police arrived, a male victim was located inside the residence suffering wounds received from an edged weapon.
The male victim was transported to hospital, but despite all medical efforts the male victim succumbed to his injuries. A male suspect was located at the scene by police, and was taken into custody.
As this was quickly deemed a homicide, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct on the case. IHIT is working closely with the Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section, and the B.C. Coroner’s Service to gather and review evidence.
The investigation remains ongoing.
“This altercation occurred between parties known to each other, and was not random,” IHIT Cpl. Meghan Foster said. “This matter is now before the courts, and limited information can be provided as the court process will be honoured.”
