NRI Navreet Kaur Waraich stabbed to death

Surrey, October 31, 2006

Three NRI women have been killed within two weeks due to social and criminal problem in our NRI community.

Surrey resident, Navreet Kaur Waraich had been stabbed to death by her husband in basement of Newton county. Her husband Jatinder Waraich, cab driver was arrested.

They have four month old baby. Navreet was calling her family in India every week that she had been mistreated by her husband. Her father, Dilbag Gill in Amritsar, India said that he wants to come to Canada to deal with his daughter's funeral and also look after her son.

RCMP Cpl. Roger Morrow said police were called to Waraich's rented home in the 7000-block of 123 B Street about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The RCMP said the case is one of domestic violence and that the victim succumbed to multiple stab wounds.

Attorney General Wally Oppal said some within the Indo-Canadian community are so concerned about public reputation that they don't want to get help when there is a problem. He is extremely concerned about the recent violence in his community. "Let's just solve it within the house. Let's not get anyone else involved," Oppal said, describing a common attitude. "Our temples have to get involved in this."

Last week, NRI Manjit Phangali was murdered and her burned body was found near Airport. Police is still investigating this case.

Maninder Singh Gill, Radio owner put up a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in Panghali murder.

On Oct. 19, Gurjeet Kaur Ghuman, 40, was shot in the face by her husband Paramjit Ghuman and later shot himself.

A founder of the India Mahila Association, Raminder Dosanjh said the three cases demand a community response.
