Surrey: An Indian-origin man from Ludhiana, Punjab, was shot dead in Surrey, Canada, on Friday. The victim, Yuvraj Goyal, 28, had arrived in Canada in 2019 on a student visa and had recently obtained his Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) status. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Yuvraj had no criminal record, and the motive for his murder is still under investigation.
The incident occurred on June 7 at 8:46 am. The Surrey Police received a call reporting a shooting in the 900-block of 164 Street in Surrey, British Columbia. Upon arrival, officers found Yuvraj dead at the scene.
So far four suspects have been taken into custody. The suspects are Manvir Basram (23), Sahib Basra (20), and Harkirat Jhutty (23) from Surrey, and Keilon Francois (20) from Ontario. They have been charged with first-degree murder.
Sergeant Timothy Pierotti said, "We are thankful for the hard work of the Surrey RCMP, Air 1, and the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team (IERT), but there is still more work to be done. Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) investigators remain dedicated to determining why Mr Goyal was the victim of this homicide."
Preliminary investigation suggests that the shooting was targeted. However, the reasons behind Yuvraj's killing are still being investigated, the Sergeant further added. Yuvraj worked as a sales executive. His father, Rajesh Goyal, runs a firewood business, and his mother, Shakun Goyal, is a homemaker.
