Both City Police And RCMP Not Effective In Controlling The Gang Killings Problem As Seen By The Latest Killing Of 19-Year-Old Indo-Canadian In Abbotsford!
University student Jagvir Malhi has been identified as the man shot and killed in a brazen daylight attack in Abbotsford this week. Malhi's killing is the latest in a spate of recent serial gang killings of young Indo-Canadian men which has been going on for decades with over 250 young Indo-Canadian men dead.
ABBOTSFORD – While there is much talk about how RCMP is in effective in dealing with crime and City police would be better suited even if it means millions spent in the changing the police force, but whether it is City police or RCMP, both seem to be in effective in dealing with out of control gang violence as seen with the latest killing of a young Indo-Canadian man in Abbotsford.
University student Jagvir Malhi has been identified as the man shot and killed in a brazen daylight attack in Abbotsford this week.
Malhi's killing is the latest in a spate of recent serial gang killings of young Indo-Canadian men which has been going on for decades with over 250 young Indo-Canadian men dead.
Abbotsford has a City police force but gang crime is out of control in that city and Malhi's murder is just the latest in an ongoing blood bath in the city that has seen so many young Indo-Canadian men killed.
The 19-year-old Malhi was gunned down in what police are calling a gang-related shooting Monday afternoon. He was a university student and class clown at University o f the Fraser Valley (UFV), according to people who knew him.
Malhi was shot multiple times near the intersection of Ross and Simpson roads in Abbotsford, just a block from his parents' home and steps away from an elementary school. An off-duty nurse who was first at the scene tried to save the young man's life, but he died after being air lifted to hospital.
Malhi is a 2017 graduate of W. J. Mouat Secondary, where he played on the basketball team, and a criminology student at University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford.
A man who'd gone to high school with Malhi told CTV that he has positive memories of the young man as a class clown, and said there are many people in their graduating class who'd have only good things to say.
Extra support is now being made available to those who shared a classroom with him most recently. The University of the Fraser Valley is making counselling available to both students and faculty.
"Any loss of life is tragic, and our condolences go out to the family," UFV's Dave Pinton told CTV.
Police haven't provided much information about the motivation behind Malhi's death, saying only that they believe his shooting was linked to the ongoing gang conflict in B.C.'s Lower Mainland.
They have not said what connection they believe Malhi might have to the conflict.
He was fatally shot just two hours after an exchange of gunfire between vehicles in Surrey. Officials have not said whether the shootings appear to be connected.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), which is leading the investigation, posted on Twitter on Tuesday morning that work is continuing in the investigation, but there are “no further details at this time” and nothing to report to media.
“This shooting occurred near a public school – a blatant disregard for the safety of our community. We are fortunate that school was not in session at the time,” said Cpl. David Lee of IHIT.
Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
