Two men arrested in nine-year-old Surrey murder

Parminder Singh Basran and Bhabjit Singh Aujla have been charged in connection with the killing of Amandeep Bath in 2004.

Two men have been arrested again in the nine-year-old murder of Amandeep Bath.

On Sept. 23, 2004, Bath was out with friends, and on the way home, when he was confronted by an acquaintance.

Bath took off in his vehicle and called 911.

Police say he was pursued by two men who caught up with him at 91 Avenue and 125 Street in Surrey.

The confrontation continued, and Bath was fatally shot.

Surrey RCMP arrived and arrested one of the suspects.

The second suspect was identified and arrested a few days following the homicide.

Both individuals were charged with homicide-related charges. However, charges were stayed in 2005 as Crown concluded evidence did not support a prosecution.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has now re-arrested 28- year-old Parminder Singh Basran,  who is charged with second-degree murder, and 29-year-old Bhabjit Singh Aujla, who is charged with manslaughter and accessory after the fact.
