BHAVKIRAN DHESI HOMICIDE: GURVINDER DEO (25) And TALWINDER KHUN KHUN (22) Arrested By IHIT, Additional Charges Laid

Darpan News Desk , 22 Jun, 2019
  • BHAVKIRAN DHESI HOMICIDE: GURVINDER DEO (25) And TALWINDER KHUN KHUN (22) Arrested By IHIT, Additional Charges Laid

Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with the 2017 homicide of Bhavkiran Dhesi in Surrey.

 

On June 21, 2019, 25-year-old Gurvinder Deo and 22-year-old Talwinder Khun Khun were arrested by IHIT investigators and charged by the B.C. Prosecution Service for accessory after the fact to murder, and indecently interfere with or offer an indignity to human remains.

 

IHIT investigators also gathered evidence which resulted in the B.C. Prosecution Service laying an additional charge of indecently interfere with or offer an indignity to human remains against 21-year-old Harjot Deo. Mr. Deo already faces a charge of second degree murder.

 
 
 

19-year-old Dhesi's body was found in a burning SUV on 24th Avenue almost two years ago.

 

Last December, police found an Audi Q7 they believed to be connected to the crime. Officers were also searching for a dark grey Dodge Ram.

 

Deo was in a romantic relationship with Dhesi and was arrested by police when he landed at Vancouver's airport on May 10.

 

Two members of Harjot's family – his older sister, Inderdeep Deo, and his mother, Majit Kaur Deo – have also been charged in the case.

 

Both are accused of having assisted Harjot in his alleged bid to escape justice.

 

IHIT continues to investigate with the assistance of policing partners in the Lower Mainland while using resources from integrated and specialized units within the BC RCMP. Investigators are committed to finding everyone who is responsible.

 

We know that there are still people out there with important information, says Corporal David Lee of IHIT. We urge those people to come forward.

 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
