An Indo Canadian gangster has been killed in a gang war in Richmond in Canada. The deceased, according to the Vancouver police, has been identified as Ravinder Samra. He was 36. Ravinder became the latest victim in an ongoing intra gang conflict in Canada. In May this year, his younger brother Amarpreet Samra was shot dead. Ravinder also was shot dead.
British Columbia in Canada has been witnessing gang wars of late. According to the police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police personnel found a critically injured man following reports of shooting. He was declared dead on the spot.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) identified the man as Ravinder Samra.
On May 28 this year, his brother, 28-year-old Amarpreet Samra, was shot dead outside a banquet hall in Vancouver.
IHIT spokesperson Cpl Sukhi Dhesi said in a statement issued on Friday that this was a targeted shooting related to an ongoing gang conflict.
The brothers, according to the Vancouver Sun, were affiliated to the United Nations gang, which was in conflict with other local gangs including Brothers Keepers.
In August last year, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit or CFSEU-BC had released a list of 11 individuals allegedly linked to gangs, nine of whom were Indo-Canadians, and warned this was being done “due to the significant threat to the public posed by a number of individuals involved in the Lower Mainland gang conflict and their ongoing nexus to violence.”
Among those listed were the Samra brothers.
