Parmvir ‘Parm’ Singh Chahil

ONTARIO’S Peel Regional Police investigators with the assistance of Windsor Police arrested and charged Parmvir ‘Parm’ Singh Chahil, 21, of no fixed address, for aggravated assault in Windsor, Ontario on Friday March 23.

Police also arrested and charged Hardip Padda, a 44-year-old female, and Harmanvir Chahil, an 18-year-old male, both of Windsor, for accessory after the fact in Windsor. Both were  released on a promise to appear before an Ontario Court of Justice in the City of Windsor on May 2.

Peel Regional Police’s investigators from the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau had on Wednesday (March 21) identified Chahil as one of three men responsible for a vicious assault on a male with autism in Mississauga on March 13 and a Canada-wide arrest warrant for him was issued.

On Tuesday night (March 20), Peel Regional Police had identified the first suspect as Ronjot Singh Dhami, 25. His last known address was in Surrey, B.C. A Canada-wide arrest warrant for him was issued. He is wanted for one count of aggravated assault. Police had encouraged Dhami and Chahil to call a lawyer and surrender to them.

The third male involved in this incident has not yet been positively identified, but may go by the first name of Jason.

Last week, on March 13, at approximately 10:45 p.m., police had responded to a violent assault that occurred in the Square One bus terminal located at 200 Rathburn Road West in Mississauga. The victim was taken to local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone who sees Dhami, is asked to call police immediately. Police warned people not to approach him as he is extremely dangerous.


THE Abbotsford, B.C. house of a man with the same name as Parmvir Chahil was targeted in September 2015. His neighbour, Ping Shun Ao, 75, was killed in his driveway in the 3500-block of Promontory Court in that shooting. Chahil’s house was hit by several shots. At the time, Chahil was facing charges of uttering threats and possessing a weapon for dangerous purposes.


DHAMI was one of seven people who were arrested in December 2016 after three firearms and more than $40,000 in drugs and cash were seized from four homes in Alberta’s Grande Prairie. He was 23 years old at the time.

Dhami was charged with two counts of possession of drugs and possession of proceeds of crime.

Another South Asian who was also charged in the same case was Karman Singh Grewal, then 19, of Langley. Grewal was charged with possession of drugs (two counts), possession of proceeds of crime, and breach of recognizance (three counts). Grewal’s breach charges stemmed from a previous Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) investigation that took place in October 2016.

Dhami was also charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking in Kelowna in 2014 when cops pulled over a vehicle in which he was a passenger. While in a cell, he excreted small quantities of heroin, cocaine and fentanyl from his rectum. Police found seven small plastic bags containing 1.24 grams of heroin, 23 bags containing 5.86 grams of crack cocaine, and 23 bags containing 4.59 grams of fentanyl. But a B.C. Supreme Court judge in 2016 found that the RCMP had unlawfully arrested him.

In January 2017, Dhami was acquitted. The Crown prosecutor in the case told the media: “The evidence was excluded at the end of day and as a result there was no evidence of any drugs found and as such there was no further evidence called and Mr. Dhami was acquitted on all charges.”
