Harjot Singh Deo — the man facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of 19-year-old Surrey student Kiran Dhesi — has been granted bail.

According to the BC Prosecution Service (BCPS), Deo was granted $750,000 surety bail with a deposit of $50,000 on October 11.

“The conditions amount to house arrest,” said Dan McLaughlin with the BCPS in an emailed statement to Daily Hive.

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

Deo was arrested at the Vancouver International Airport and charged in May 2019.

Prior to her death, Dhesi received a kidney transplant after suffering five years with an autoimmune disease known as GPA. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) confirmed Deo and Dhesi were involved in a romantic relationship.

Deo’s 53-year-old mother and 23-year-old sister also face charges in connection to Dhesi’s death. Two other men were also arrested in June. 

The BCPS says all five suspects are scheduled for a court appearance on November 13.
