MANJIT KAUR DEO Charged In Connection To Murder Of BHAVKIRAN DHESI

Darpan News Desk , 21 May, 2019
  • MANJIT KAUR DEO Charged In Connection To Murder Of BHAVKIRAN DHESI

54 years old Manjit Kaur Deo has been charged with “accessory after the fact to murder” in connection with the murder of 19-year-old Surrey woman Bhavkiran Dhesi. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is to provide full update later today.

 

Police believe that there are individuals in the community that have ‘very intimate’ knowledge of what happened to Bhavkiran. They are looking for other individuals to come forward if they have that knowledge.

 
 

Harjot Deo was taken into custody after arriving at Vancouver International Airport from an undisclosed location in Canada, investigators said in a statement on May 13.

 
 
 
 

IHIT Supt. Donna Richardson said police could not disclose what evidence led to Deo's arrest but that the investigation was still active.

 

Manjit Kaur Deo is expected to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Wednesday.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Last week, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team held a press conference and announced that Harjot Singh Deo, 21, has been charged with second-degree murder in 19-year-old Dhesi’s death.

 
 

Supt. Donna Richardson, the officer in charge of the homicide team, says Deo was in a romantic relationship with Dhesi and was arrested by police when he landed at Vancouver's airport last week.

 

Investigators said in 2018 that they were looking for a grey Audi Q7 and a Dodge Ram truck, two vehicles believed to be involved in the homicide.

 

Dhesi was a student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey and just six months before her death she had a kidney transplant.

 
 

Her family made an appeal to the public last year for help in solving her murder, saying she went through five years with an autoimmune disease and experienced dialysis, surgeries and complications, but she was strong and wanted to live.

 

Her sister, Anjali Dhesi, said in the statement in August 2018 that when her sister had the transplant, it seemed like everything was finally going to be OK.
