Inderdeep Kaur Deo – one of five people arrested and charged in connection with the August 2017 death of Surrey teen Bhavkiran Dhesi – was released on bail Friday morning.
Deo, 23, was freed – bound by a number of conditions while on release – following a hearing at BC Supreme Court in New Westminster, which set bail at $275,000, BC Prosecution Service communications counsel Dan McLaughlin confirmed.
Inderdeep and her mother, Manjit Kaur Deo, 53, have been charged with “accessory after the fact to murder.”
Inderdeep Deo’s younger brother, Harjot Singh Deo, 21, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Dhesi, a college student.
On June 21 two more men, Gurvinder Deo, 25, who is Harjot Deo’s older brother, and Talwinder Khun Khun, 22, were also arrested and charged in connection to the murder.
The men were charged with “accessory after the fact to murder, and indecently interfere with or offer an indignity to human remains.”
Nineteen-year-old Dhesi’s body was found in a burned SUV in the 18700-block of 24 Avenue in South Surrey on Aug. 2, 2017.
Harjot Deo, Manjit Deo and Inderdeep Deo are all under no-contact orders, prohibiting them from making contact with Dhesi’s parents and sister.
All five accused are scheduled to be back in court on July 3 to fix further court dates.
“As the matter remains before the court the BC Prosecution Service will have no further comment,” McLaughlin said.
