Shots Fired At Home Of Canada Temple Head’s Son
TORONTO (IANS) – Canadian police are investigating an incident in which shots were fired at the residence of a Hindu temple’s head’s son in British Columbia in the early hours of December 28.
Police said no one was injured during the incident at the 14900 block of 80 Avenue in Surrey — the residence of the son of Satish Kumar, president of the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir.
“Officers are still working to determine the motive of this incident,” said Constable Parmbir Kahlon, Media Relations Officer for Surrey Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Kahlon added that the residence involved sustained damage consistent with bullet holes.
According to media reports, as many as 14 shots were fired at the Hindu businessman’s house.
Police remained in the area, examining the scene, speaking with witnesses, and canvassing the neighborhood for CCTV footage.
The same Lakshmi Narayan Mandir of Surrey was targeted in August this year after anti-India and pro-Khalistan posters were found pasted on its front and rear walls.
Last month, Indian-origin Canadian MP Chandra Arya shared a purported video of pro-Khalistan supporters in Surrey, claiming they want to create trouble at the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir.
