Parmvir ‘Parm’ Chahil and Jaspaul Uppal who were charged with the aggressive beating of a man with autism at the Square One bus terminal back in the spring of 2018 will have their day in court this summer.
According to court documents, Parmvir ‘Parm’ Chahil and Jaspaul Uppal, two of three men charged with aggravated assault, will appear at the Ontario Superior Court in Brampton on June 16 for a sentencing submission and the following day for their sentencing hearings.
Court documents also confirm that both men have pleaded guilty to the charges.
The charges stem from the March 13, 2018 beating of a 29-year-old man with autism, who was left bloodied and with a broken nose. The beating was captured on security camera and the footage, where three men can be seen kicking and punching a man sitting on a set of stairs, was viewed by many.
Peel police released the footage to the public in hopes of finding the men in the video.
The public outcry was large at the time, which had police and political leaders vowing to bring the men in the video to justice. At the time, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie called the attack “heinous and senseless.”
Chahil, who was 21 years old at the time, was arrested in Windsor almost two weeks after the incident. He was released on a $25,000 bail.
His mother Hardip Padda and brother Harmanvir Chahil were both charged with accessory after the fact.
Uppal, who was also 21 years old at the time, was apprehended nearly a month after the incident on May 19, when a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest. He surrendered to Abbotsford Police in British Columbia and was turned over to Peel police.
The third suspect, 25-year-old Ronjot Singh Dhami, was arrested by Peel police on March 26. He pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and was sentenced to time served and two years’ probation. He was released from custody in November 2018.
