File # 2022-1566

A guilty plea has been entered in relation to the December 7 murder of Harpreet Kaur Gill. 


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.

The matter will now proceed to a sentencing hearing which is anticipated to be scheduled for later this year.

I’m proud of the hard work done by the IHIT team and the Surrey RCMP, which brought this file to this point, says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. Cases that involve domestic violence have an impact on the entire community. If you or someone you know is in need of help, please reach out to your local police.
