The home of Baldev Singh Kalsi has been the target of at least two break-ins.

Kalsi family home broken into after homicide

At least two break-ins occurred since death of Narinder Lalsi and arrest of former temple leader Baldev Singh Kalsi.

The South Surrey home of the former Sikh temple leader who has been charged with his wife’s murder has been the target of break-ins since his arrest.

Family members have reported at least two break-ins at the home, located in the 19400-block of 32 Avenue.

Baldev Singh Kalsi – who was president of Surrey’s Gurdwara Sahib Brookside temple until days after the attack of Narinder Kaur Kalsi – has been charged with second-degree murder.

He was arrested at the home on July 13, where his wife was discovered in severe medical distress. She died in hospital on July 20.

Two days later, the house was broken into, with a Kia Sedona and trailer stolen and used to transport several electronics and jewelry, Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News Tuesday.

The vehicle was found July 28 abandoned in Langley.

The RCMP’s forensic identification section has examined the vehicle, as well as the home, and police said they are hoping evidence will be recovered that can assist in finding the people responsible.

On Aug. 5, another break-in attempt occurred, however, there was no items stolen on this occasion, Paquet said.

“There was evidence that the residence was illegally entered as part of a break-and-enter attempt,” Paquet said.

Family members have surveillance tape that they have sent over to media outlets showing two persons of interest.

Paquet noted that the break-ins showed some level of planning and organization in that there was an expectation the residence was vacant following the homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 citing case number 2014-111370.
