Delta Police Issue Warning About 69-Yr-Old Surrey Man GURCHETAN SINGH SAMRA, Charged With Sexual Offences Involving A Child

Darpan News Desk, 13 Dec, 2019
  • Delta Police Issue Warning About 69-Yr-Old Surrey Man GURCHETAN SINGH SAMRA, Charged With Sexual Offences Involving A Child

Delta Police are advising the public about bail conditions imposed on a man, charged with sexual offences involving a child.


In April 2019, 69-year-old Gurchetan Singh Samra of Surrey was charged with sexual interference and sexual assault. The alleged offences occurred in Delta in January 2019.


The disposition of the bail hearing for Samra imposed the following public safety conditions of note:

– Samra must not go to any public park, public swimming area, or community centre where persons under the age of 16 years are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or at a day care centre, school ground or playground.


– Samra must have no contact or communication directly or indirectly with or be alone in the presence of any person who reasonably appears to be under the age of 16 years.


– Samra must not engage in activities, volunteer work, or employment that could bring him into contact with persons under the age of 16 years.


Delta Police said they have been monitoring Samra’s bail conditions since he was charged and released. His name was not made public at the time of charges, as police sought clarification on publication bans regarding these charges.


“If anyone observes Mr. Samra breaching his conditions, or if they have any information relevant to the current charges against him, and have not yet spoken to police, they are advised to contact the Delta Police Sexual Offences Section at 604-946-4411,” said Inspector Guy Leeson of the Delta Police Major Crimes Section.


Leeson noted that offences such as these are often committed in situations where the accused is in a position of trust or authority in relation to the victim(s).


“It is important for parents and primary caregivers to be alive to any situation that may put their child at risk, and for them to make the appropriate enquiries to ensure their child’s safety,” said Leeson.


Delta Police recommend that parents ensure that appropriate vulnerable sector checks have been conducted on individuals who will have access to their children.


Police say they are not in a position to be able to release a photo of Samra, and cannot provide any additional information.
