File # 2022-1566

The husband of Harpreet Kaur Gill has been sentenced in relation to the 2022 homicide. 


On December 7, 2022, at 9:22 p.m. the Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing in the 12700-block of 66 Avenue, Surrey. Officers attended and found a 40-year old woman, later identified as Harpreet Kaur Gill, in medical distress, resulting from multiple stab wounds. Despite the best efforts of first responders, Mrs. Gill succumbed to her injuries after being transported to a local hospital. A suspect was arrested at the scene and taken into police custody. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the investigation and worked closely with the Surrey RCMP.

On December 16, 2022, a charge of second-degree murder was laid against the suspect, identified as 40-year old Navinder Gill of Surrey, the husband of Mrs. Gill. 

On June 22, 2023, Navinder Gill entered a guilty plea to the charge of second-degree murder.

On February 21, 2024, Navinder Gill was sentenced to life in prison with no parole eligibility for 10 years.

Incidents of intimate partner violence have a profound effect on families and communities, says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. We’re thankful for the great work being done by Surrey RCMP Victim Services and the Ministry of Children and Family Development who continue to support the family and the community.
