SURREY (NEWS 1130) – Charges have been laid more than one year after a man was killed outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Surrey.

48-year-old Lakhwinder Bal was involved in a fight in an alley near the restaurant’s parking lot on August 19th, 2018.

Sgt Frank Jang with the Homicide Team says Bal was found unconscious by first responders just after 9 pm.

“It was at Prince Charles Boulevard and 96th Avenue. That’s where he was found by first responders, he was taken to hospital where he sadly died of his injuries,” he says. “Just over a year later I can now confirm two males, Daljeet Biring and Gurmail Biring were arrested by IHIT.”

Daljeet Biring and Gurmail Biring were arrested on Friday, and charged with second-degree murder.

Jang says it was an extensive investigation that involved law enforcement teams from across the Lower Mainland.

“We just wanted to express our own gratitude for our own investigators and also our policing partners throughout the region who contributed greatly to the latest outcome.”

He says this was not a random attack and did not involve gangs.

Both accused men appeared before a judge on Monday.
