Police Seek Arrest Warrants for 2 Canadians Wanted for Murder

Police have requested arrest warrants for two Canadian men wanted for the killing of an Indian gangster a week ago in Phuket, Thailand.

Phuket provincial police Chief Pol Maj Gen Sermphan Sirikhong said Saturday that a warrant was being sought from the Phuket provincial court for the arrest of the two Canadians on charges of murder.

The Canadian nationals are both aged 37. No names or other details were given by the Police Chief.

The two assassins entered Thailand in December and flew out on Feb 6, two days after they shot and killed Jimi “Slice” Sandhu. They then threw the handguns used in the shooting into the ocean near the shooting scene.

The handguns have since been recovered and have been entered into evidence.

According to reports, Sandhu, a notorious figure in Surrey, British Columbia, before his deportation from Canada in 2016, was involved in criminal activities related to the crime.

On January 27, Jimi Sandhu landed in Phuket by private jet with a fake passport bearing the name “Mandeep Singh.” Thai media report that Sandhu first attempted to enter Malaysia, but ran into problems with his passport.

Immigration officers are also looking into who checked Sandhu’s passport and allowed him to enter the country.

On the night of Feb. 4, Sandhu was shot multiple times in the parking lot of his rented beachfront villa on Rawai Beach in Muang district. Sandhu’s body was taken to the Vachira Phuket Hospital morgue.

At present, 20 police are investigating the murder. A CZ 9mm semi-automatic pistol and a Walther 9mm fully automatic pistol were found in the ocean not far from the murder scene on Thursday.

The guns were legally registered in the names of two influential Thai citizens. They both have been summoned by police for questioning on how the Canadians gained access to their handguns.

Meanwhile, the Thaiger reports, Thai police are working with Interpol and the Canadian RCMP to arrest the suspects and extradite them to Thailand for trial.

On Friday, Thailand’s National police chief Suwat Jangyodsuk said Sandhu’s family would arrive in Phuket either on Sunday or Monday to bring his body back to India.
