JULY 3 UPDATE:
A GoFundMe Page has been set up for Kamaljit Sandhu by Sean Kelly who writes:
“On July 28, 2022, we lost one of the most caring, loving, kind and strong women I have met. I was privileged to work alongside Kam for the last year in a half at the Seven Oaks Branch of RBC. One of our expert front-line advisors, she led with care and empathy with all of our clients and patiently worked with the staff, helping to teach and mentor individuals. She was funny, sweet, and went out of her way to make you feel good about yourself and what was going on in your world. Her passing is a tragedy. Kam leaves behind two children. This fundraiser is created to generate funds to assist the family in any way. Please show your love and support with your donations.”
THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced on Friday that in partnership with the Abbotsford Police Department, it had obtained a first-degree murder charge against 48-year-old Inderjit Sandhu in the death of 45-year-old Kamaljit Sandhu.
The accused and the deceased have two children, ages 16 and 21, who are now with their extended family.
On Thursday, July 28 at around 4:44 p.m., Abbotsford Police responded to an assault at a residence in the 2900-block of Eastview Street in Abbotsford. Police found a woman with serious injuries, who was treated by paramedics but sadly, died at scene.
Police located a man at the scene and took him into custody. IHIT was contacted and now has assumed control of the investigation.
IHIT is working in partnership with Abbotsford Police Department and its Forensic Identification Section (FIS), and the BC Coroners Service. The scene exam is ongoing and statements have been taken.
“This was traumatic to all the family and neighbours,” said IHIT Sgt. David Lee. “Support services and resources are being made available to all those who need it.”
