IHIT finds one of two vehicles wanted in Bhavkiran Dhesi homicide

THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced on Saturday night that it had found one of the two vehicles they had been trying to locate since police found the body of 19-year-old Bhavkiran Dhesi inside a burning vehicle in the 18700-block of 24th Avenue in Surrey on August 2, 2017, at around 12:20 a.m.

“Vehicle found: #IHIT investigators would like to thank the public for their assistance in locating the Audi Q7 related to the homicide of Bhavkiran Dhesi,” IHIT tweeted.


The other vehicle that has yet to be found is  a dark grey Dodge Ram truck.



According to an appeal made by police through CrimeStoppers in October, Dhesi was a student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. She was described as one of the best friends anybody could ask for.

On August 2, 2017, when police arrived at the scene of the burning vehicle, the fire department had already extinguished the flames. Inside the vehicle was a deceased female that had sustained injuries consistent with homicide.

Dhesi was last seen leaving the family home, with the family car, at 9 p.m. on August 1, 2017, a mere three hours prior to the car fire.

While, Kiran was not known to the police, investigators believe that this was not a random act.

Although, police executed a warrant to a home in Newton shortly after the discovery of Kiran’s body; so far, no arrests have been made and the case remains active.

Earlier this month, Dhesi’s family had made a public appeal to help to find those responsible for her murder. Her sister Anjali Dhesi said : “If you have any information regarding Kiran’s death no matter how small or irrelevant you may think it is, I’m pleading to you as someone who has lost their sister and friend to please come forward.  Don’t hesitate to contact IHIT or Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous.  Any piece of information is important.  Help us fight for her because she’s no longer here to do it herself.”



    • If you are referring to the info about the vehicles IHIT was looking for, then that’s actually one year and five months as the murder occurred in 2017.
