A 40-year-old NRI Sikh Navinder Gill has been charged with second-degree murder for fatally stabbing his wife at their home in British Columbia.
Navinder Gill of Surrey was taken into custody by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) for stabbing his wife Harpreet Kaur, 40, multiple times on December 7. Gill was taken in as a suspect on the night of the incident, but was released a day later. He was rearrested and charged last week, police said.
Surrey RCMP responded to a townhome near 127 Street and 66 Avenue around 9:20 p.m. on Dec. 7 for a report of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found a 40-year-old woman – later identified as Harpreet Kaur Gill – suffering from multiple stab wounds.
The victim was taken to hospital, but succumbed to her injuries, prompting IHIT to take over the case.
The victim was the mother of at least one child in elementary school. A letter was sent to parents from MJ Norris Elementary in Surrey the day after the crime saying the school community suffered a “tragic loss.”
