Canadian man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for the 2021 killing of a 23-year-old Sikh from India in the country’s Nova Scotia province, media reports said.
Prabhjot Singh Katri was stabbed to death by 21-year-old Cameron James Prosper in an unprovoked attack outside an apartment building in Truro town of the province in September 2021.
Prosper was initially charged with second-degree murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter during a court appearance on December 19, 2022.
Katri, who worked for a taxi service company as well as a few restaurants in Truro, came to Canada from India in 2017 to study. He was 23 when he died.
Prosper stabbed Katri in the neck on September 5, 2021, when the Sikh youth was leaving a friend’s apartment. Katri rushed back to his friend’s apartment, where they called the police. He was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead because of blood loss from the injuries.
