The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) have responded after an altercation between two Surrey neighbours resulted in the death of a 40-year old man. 

Background:

On August 31, 2022, Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a physical altercation between two neighbours in the 14100-block of 61 Avenue, Surrey. Officers and Emergency Health Services (EHS) personnel attended and provided first aid, but sadly, despite best efforts, the victim’s condition deteriorated rapidly and he succumbed to his injuries on scene. A suspect was located on scene by Surrey RCMP and was arrested for murder. IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the Surrey RCMP, BC Coroners Service and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).

At this time, no charges have been laid and the suspect remains in custody.
IHIT is identifying the victim as Manbir "Mani" Amar, of Surrey, B.C. in hopes of advancing their investigation.

This was an isolated incident between two neighbours, says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. Tragically this situation escalated to a point where a life was taken.

IHIT is asking any witnesses to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
