A second-degree murder charge has been laid in the death of an 18-year-old Mehakpreet Sethi outside a Surrey high school last year.
Homicide investigators say an 18-year-old man has been charged, but his name won’t be released because he was a youth at the time of the death.
The stabbing happened November 22nd last year outside Tamanawis Secondary School, while the victim was picking up his younger sibling.
IHIT’s investigative team has remained committed to this investigation over the past year. We would like to thank the Surrey RCMP, the staff and students at Tamanawis Secondary School and the entire community, for their support throughout this investigation, said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT.
Serious incidents such as this have a profound impact on all those involved. IHIT and the Surrey RCMP will continue to support the community and all those affected by this senseless tragedy.
The teenager was found with life-threatening injuries at the scene and efforts by first responders weren’t able to save him.
