The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is currently investigating a double homicide that took place in Surrey on Monday night. Two teenage boys have been identified as the victims.

According to IHIT, Surrey RCMP received a report of two bodies found in the area of 192 Street and 40 Avenue on June 4, just after 10:30 pm.

When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered two unresponsive males lying roadside with gunshot wounds. The victims were declared deceased at the scene and IHIT took over the investigation.

The victims have been identified as 16-year-old Jaskarn Singh Jhutty and 17-year-old Jaskaran Singh Bhangal, of Surrey. IHIT says the incident is believed to be targeted.

“We believe there are people who have information about what happened to Jaskarn and Jaskaran last night,” said Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT, in a release. “Please reach out and speak with IHIT so that we can hold those responsible to account.”

The double homicide is being connected to two burning cars also found on the evening of June 4.

At 9:46 pm Surrey RCMP were alerted of a burning vehicle in the area of 184 Street and 29A Avenue.  IHIT would like to speak with anyone that has information about this vehicle.

Almost two hours later, at 11 pm, Surrey RCMP received a call of a second burning vehicle in the area of 177 Street and 93 Avenue.  Investigators have determined that this burnt vehicle was a Honda Accord and would like to speak with anyone with information about the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at [email protected].
