9 Punjab-origin men listed as ‘threat to public’ in Canada | Chandigarh News

BATINDA: Anti-gang agency, Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, British Columbia (CFSEU-BC), in conjunction with the Vancouver Police Department and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), has named 11 individuals, nine of whom are of Punjabi descent , as a significant threat to public safety due to their continued involvement in gang conflict and their association with extreme levels of violence.
They say they are linked to a slew of murders and shootings in the province of British Columbia, and warned the public not to go near them. The individuals of Punjab origin have been accused of several gang fights in Canada. The various murders, including that of Ripudaman Singh Maliko on July 14 at Surrey are under the scanner. Even the murder of Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, known as Sidhu Moose Wala in Punjab, was allegedly planned by Canada-based Satvinder Singh, better known as Goldy Brar.
In citing the 11, CFSEU ​​said it is highly likely that a rival mobster will attack them violently and even pose a risk to their friends and family. Such warnings to stay away from criminals are uncommon, but have been increasing slowly in recent years. This is the second such list by CFSEU ​​in over a year.
Maninder Dhaliwal, who was on the similar list last year, was shot in Whistler last month in a shooting that saw tourists and visitors screaming. According to police, his brother, Harpreet, was the man who was shot dead last year in the Coal Harbor neighborhood of Vancouver. Another brother, 35-year-old Gurpreet Dhaliwal, is on this year’s list.
CFSEU ​​spokesperson Sergeant Brenda Winpenny tweeted: “These individuals pose a significant threat to the security of our communities. Be vigilant in taking precautions for your personal safety. For those involved, we can help you get out.”
Those on the list are: Shakiel Basra, 28; Amarpreet Samra, 28; Jagdeep Cheema, 30; Ravinder Samra, 35; Narinder Dhaliwal, 39; Andy St. Pierre, 39; Gurpreet Dhaliwal, 35; Richard Joseph Whitlock, 40; Samrop Gill, 29; Sumdish Gill, 28; and Sukhdeep, 33.
CFSEU ​​has also published fact sheets on BC gangs and organized crime stating that its investigations highlight the seizure of large quantities of drugs and hundreds of firearms in the province.
