UPDATED: Husband charged with second-degree murder in death of wife in Newton

NEWTON — Harbans Pandher has been charged with second-degree murder of his 64-year-old wife Jaswant Pandher.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken conduct of the investigation, in what appears to have been a domestic-related homicide in Newton.

Police were called to a home in the 6900-block of 152nd Street in Newton just after 1 p.m. Sunday.

Surrey RCMP found a woman deceased inside the home and suspected foul play. Soon after, IHIT was called in.

Pander was arrested at the scene.

“As this investigation is early the motive appears unclear but evidence thus far suggests this to be domestic related,” said IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound in a statement.

Reports say witnesses saw a girl run outside yelling for help, claiming her grandmother had been killed.

The former president of a Surrey Sikh temple has been charged with  second-degree murder after his wife died in hospital.

Narinder Kaur Kalsi was taken off life support on Sunday following a domestic dispute that left her in critical condition last week. She was pronounced dead just before 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Her husband, Baldev Singh Kalsi, was originally charged with aggravated assault in connection to the incident. That charge was later upgraded to attempted murder, and now murder.

Baldev Kalsi, 66, was the president of the Gurdwara Sahib Brookside but was removed from his position last Thursday.
