Canada: Eight Indo-Canadians among 11 posing threat to public in BC

Eight of the 11 people on a warning list of gang members who represent a threat to the public published by law enforcement in the province of British Columbia are Indo-Canadians.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-BC) issued the warning on social media, stating that it was necessary “due to the serious threat to the public posed by a number of individuals involved in the Lower Mainland gang conflict and their continued linkage to violence.” This is referring to the Metro Vancouver region, which includes Surrey.

Amarpreet Samra, 28, Jagdeep Cheema, 30, Ravinder Samra, 35, Barinder Dhaliwal, 39, Gurpreet Dhaliwal, 35, Samroop Gill, 29, Sumdish Gill, 28, and Sukhdeep Pansal, 33 are among those named as alleged gang members.

Sgt. Brenda Winpenny, a spokesperson for the CFSEU, tweeted that “These people pose a serious threat to the safety of our communities. Be sure to take the necessary steps to protect your personal safety. We can assist people involved in getting out.

The unit has published a public alert identifying alleged gangsters for the past two years in a row. Meninder Dhaliwal was one of those named for 2021. He was shot dead in Whistler on July 24 together with Satindera Gill, so he isn’t included in the most recent list. Two people, both from the town of Surrey, were detained in that regard: 20-year-old Tanvir Khakh and 24-year-old Gursimran Sahota. “Police feel anyone with, or in the proximity to these persons may be placing themselves at risk,” the warning continued.

The bulk of people identified are Indo-Canadians, which indicates a rise in such activity in the neighborhood.

It follows a spike in gang-related violence in the area throughout the summer, which saw the deaths of Dhaliwal and Gill among others.

Ripudaman Singh Malik was one of those killed on July 14 in Surrey in a “targeted” gangland-style homicide. Malik was previously charged with involvement in the 1985 terrorist bombing of Air India Flight 182, the Kanishka, which resulted in the deaths of 329 people. Of all charges, he was cleared. Two people were detained in relation to the homicide.

With participants from every police department in BC, CFSEU-BC is the biggest integrated police program in Canada.
