A candlelight vigil is being planned this week for the man who died while trying to break up a fight outside a Granville Street nightclub this weekend.

“With a heavy heart, Today we had to say RIP to my bro @krissthind Words cant describe how amazing Kris was, writes Ritesh Maisuria in an Instagram post. “This Wednesday Jan 31st there will be a Candle Lite Vigil held for Kris at 7pm near Granville and Davie to celebrate his vibrant life.”

Maisuria writes that all “family, friends, industry friends, and loved ones are welcome.”

The 23 year-old victim, identified by police as Kalwinder Thind, died after stepping in to try and break up a fight that began inside Cabana Lounge, and then moved out onto the street.

Thind, who was working at the club, was taken to hospital after being injured in the incident and succumbed to his injuries the next day.

Investigators are currently trying to piece evidence together, and have arrested several individuals from the incident.

Police are now looking for any witnesses and are asking anyone with information to call 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8478.
