Chandigarh, June 10

Yuvraj Goyal, a 28-year-old man from Ludhiana, Punjab, met a tragic end in Surrey, Canada, where he had been residing since 2019 on a student visa.

Reports from Canadian media reveal that local authorities have identified four suspects in connection with his death: Manvir Basram, 23, Sahib Basra, 20, and Harkirat Jhutty, 23, from Surrey, along with Keilon Francois, 20, from Ontario. They face charges of first-degree murder.

Canadian law enforcement has emphasized that Yuvraj had no prior criminal record, and investigations are underway to ascertain the motive behind his targeting. Recently granted Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) status, Yuvraj was employed as a sales executive. His father, Rajesh Goyal, runs a firewood business, while his mother, Shakun Goyal, is a homemaker.

His mother who had visited Yuvraj in March, expressed disbelief at his sudden demise, highlighting his lack of known adversaries. Recounting their last conversation, she shared how Yuvraj had assured her of his safety while returning home from the gym in the early hours, urging her to rest as it was night in India.

Devastated by the loss of their only son, Shakun and Rajesh lamented the tragic outcome and urged the Canadian government to recognize the aspirations parents harbor for their children who venture abroad. Shakun expressed her anguish, stating, “I don’t believe anyone can provide us with justice. No one can restore our son, but it’s imperative for the Canadian government to acknowledge that parents send their children to fulfill dreams, not to receive their lifeless bodies.”

Raising poignant questions about the incident, Shakun implored authorities to ensure stringent repercussions for those targeting innocents. She questioned why her son, who had maintained a peaceful existence since his arrival in Canada, became a victim of violence.

Amid speculations of mistaken identity, Dr. Ranjana Sood, a relative, emphasized the need for a thorough investigation. Yuvraj, a commerce graduate from Delhi University, had pursued a career in finance in India before pursuing further studies in Canada. Described as a responsible citizen, Yuvraj’s tragic fate has left his family demanding answers from the Canadian authorities.
