An unidentified gunman, on Monday, shot dead an Indian youth from Punjab near Steelhead Court in Abbotsford, Canada.

The 23-year-old victim has been identified as Satkar Singh Sidhu. He was a resident of Moga district in Punjab.

Sources revealed that Satkar’s relatives informed his family about the incident over telephone.

“From the evidence gathered so far, police believe that Mr. Sidhu’s murder was targeted, and is linked to other gang violence that has occurred in the Lower Mainland,” a police official said in a statement.

Abbotsford police reportedly made three arrests after the shocking incident but later, they were released as the police are now looking for a positive suspect while investigating the whole incident.

According to a statement given by police, Satkar Singh Sidhu had no criminal record, but was known to police.
