Third Murder Suspect Charged in Brampton Man's Death
A third man has been charged after a Brampton man was beaten to death.
The suspect was arrested on Friday by Peel police in connection with the death of Paviter Singh Bassi, 21, who died in hospital after a March 19 beatdown.
Officers responded to reports of an assault taking place near Sandalwood Parkway East and Cedarcliff Trail.
Police found the victim suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Bassi was rushed to a Toronto trauma centre where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Gurraj Bassi, 21, of Brampton, is facing a first-degree murder charge.
There’s no relation between the victim and the accused, say investigators.
But Gurraj Bassi is the cousin of Karanvir Singh Bassi - arrested on March 20 - who’s also facing a first-degree murder charge in this case along with another 22-year-old Brampton man, Guryodh Singh Khattra.
It’s unclear if there are more suspects outstanding.
Gurraj Bassi will appear in Brampton court on Saturday for a bail hearing.
