Prabhleen Matharu Murder: Family Of 21-Yr-Old Jalandhar Girl Killed In Surrey Still Clueless On Why She Was Shot Dead

Darpan News Desk, 27 Nov, 2019

    Gurdial Singh Matharu, the father of Prabhleen Kaur Matharu, 21, from Jalandhar who was shot dead in Surrey where she was working after studying management, is clueless on why she was targeted and is headed to see her body one last time.


    “The Canadian police have refused to share anything with us over the phone and with our relatives there. They have asked me to come to get details. I’m hopeful of getting the go-ahead from the Canadian embassy will be taking a flight at the earliest,” said an inconsolable Matharoo, 64, of Chitti village near Lambra in Jalandhar, where he runs a photo studio. He freelanced as a photographer for a Punjabi daily for 15 years.


    On Sunday morning, Prableen’s father Gurdial Singh Matharu received a call from Canadian police informing him that his daughter was found murdered.

     


    The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said the other person found dead was an 18-year-old man from the Lower Mainland.


    Matharoo said when Prabhleen got a full-time job this year, she started sending home money to repay the loan taken for her education.


    “I spent Rs 35 lakh in three years, including the Rs 15 lakh needed to send her to Canada. I borrowed the money from relatives. We still we have to repay about Rs 15 lakh,” he said.


    Her mother, Manjit Kaur, had visited her twice in two years and returned in August after spending three months with her.


    “She was happy and excited for she was to come home in January. The last time she came visiting was in January 2017. I would never have allowed her to go had I known she would never come back,” he said.


    A candlelight vigil has been scheduled for Matharu on Saturday at Holland Park.
