Indian-Origin Man Shot Dead in Canada Shortly After Receiving Residency Status

Surrey, Canada – A tragic incident unfolded in Surrey, Canada as a 28-year-old Indian man, Yuvraj Goyal, was shot dead on Friday. The authorities have apprehended four suspects in connection with the crime and have charged them with first-degree murder the following day. Despite initial indications pointing towards a targeted shooting, investigators are actively seeking the motives behind Goyal’s untimely death.

Goyal, originally from Ludhiana in Punjab, migrated to Canada in 2019 with hopes of a successful future. Recently obtaining his Canadian Permanent Resident status was a significant achievement for Goyal, who was working as a sales executive. Coming from a humble background, his father operates a firewood business, while his mother is a homemaker. Goyal’s academic accomplishments include a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) from Delhi University, and he was known for his clean record.

The arrested suspects in Goyal’s murder include Manvir Basram (23), Sahib Basra (20), Harkirat Jhutty (23), and Keilon Francois (20), all hailing from Surrey and Ontario. Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of Canada’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) expressed gratitude towards the efforts of the Surrey RCMP and other units involved in the case. However, he emphasized that there is still much to uncover regarding the reasons behind Goyal becoming a victim of such violence.

As the investigation continues, family, friends, and the community mourn the loss of Goyal, a promising young man whose life was cut short in a senseless act of violence. The authorities remain committed to seeking justice for Goyal and bringing closure to his loved ones as they navigate through this tragedy.
