28-year-old Yuvraj worked as a sales executive.


An Indian-origin man from Ludhiana in Punjab was shot dead in Surrey, Canada on Friday. The victim, Yuvraj Goyal, came to Canada on a student visa in 2019 and was recently granted Canadian permanent resident (PR) status.

28-year-old Yuvraj worked as a sales executive. His father, Rajesh Goyal, runs a timber business, while his mother, Shakun Goyal, is a homemaker. Yuvraj had no criminal record, and the motive for his murder is still under investigation. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.

The incident occurred at 8:46 a.m. on June 7, when Surrey police received a report of a shooting in the 900 block of 164 Street in Surrey, British Columbia. On arrival, officers found Yuvraj dead. Police have detained four suspects.

The accused, Manveer Basram (23), Sahib Basra (20), and Harkirat Jhti (23) of Surrey and Calvin Francois (20) of Ontario, were charged Saturday with first-degree murder.

“We are grateful for the hard work of the Surrey RCMP, Air 1, and the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team (IERT), but there is more work to be done. Investigators from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) have determined dedicated to why Mr. Goyle was the victim of this massacre,” said Sergeant Timothy Perrotti.

He added that preliminary investigation into the case suggests that the shooting was targeted, though the motive behind Yuvraj’s killing is still being ascertained.
