These arrests follow three other arrests that have been made in the case recently.

On May 13, 2019, Harjot Singh Deo, 21, was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree murder for Dhesi’s death. Investigators confirmed that Deo and Dhesi were at one point involved in a romantic relationship.

Additional charges of indecently interfering with or offering an indignity to human remains have also been laid against, said IHIT.

Following Deo’s arrest, his mother 53-year-old Manjit Kaur Deo, was charged with one count of accessory after the fact of Dhesi’s death.

Deo’s sister,  23-year-old Inderdeep Deo, was also arrested and charged by the BC Prosecution Service for accessory after the fact to murder.

IHIT has not confirmed if Gurvinder Deo or Talwinder Khun Khun are related to the three family members who have been charged.

“We know that there are still people out there with important information,” says Cpl. David Lee of IHIT, in a release. “We urge those people to come forward.”

The body of 19-year-old Dhesi was found inside a burning vehicle in the 18700-block of 24 Avenue in Surrey on August 2, 2017.

Prior to her death, Dhesi received a kidney transplant after suffering five years with an autoimmune disease known as GPA.
