Punjabi students have been in the news consistently over the last few weeks. Violent scenes involving groups of Punjabi male students led to the mayor getting involved. Now two bodies have been found in Surrey in what police are calling an apparent murder-suicide.
According to local media in India, Prabhleen Matharu was found dead in a Surrey home on Friday, and her death has been confirmed by her devastated family in India. Speaking from the Punjab, her father, Gurdial, told media in Punjabi that RCMP has not provided information regarding the motive or the cause of her death.
“My daughter has gone there on November 14, 2016 and currently she was working full-time after completing her course in business management,” said inconsolable father, Gurdyal Singh Matharoo.
Prabhleen studied business management from Langara College in Vancouver and was living in Surrey. The family was not informed about how she was killed and who were the culprits.“Her room has been sealed by the police and we do not have any information about how she was murdered,” said an inconsolable father.
“My world has been shattered completely….She was very happy there and her mother, Manjit Kaur, had visited her twice in the past two years. Her mother had just returned three months back after staying with her for nearly three months,” said the father, recalling Prabhleen’s last visit to her native place two years back.
Over the weekend new footage emerged from Canada one highlighting a man beating a girl in the street. Police are investigating the incident, the girl is said to be a Punjabi student.
In the second video that emerged, a group of Punjabi speaking Canadian students are once again filmed fighting out in the public.
