A man has been arrested and charged in relation to a homicide in Surrey earlier this year.

Early on June 19, Mounties and paramedics were called to the 13100-block of 65B Avenue on a report of a man being stabbed.

Mandepaak “Deepak” Chahal, 22 of Surrey, was taken to hospital where he died.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the investigation.

This week, a man was arrested and charged in connection with the man’s death. Surrey’s Sukhpreet “Jesse” Shergill, 20, was charged Wednesday with manslaughter.

“We would like to extent our condolences once again to Deepak’s family and thank both the Surrey RCMP and the community of Newton for assisting us in this investigation.” said Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT.

Shergill was expected to appear in court Thursday (Oct. 30).
