A large crowd gathers for memorial ceremony in honor of an 18-year-old who was stabbed outside Surrey high school, B.C




People reached in large numbers in candle march for justice for young man Mehakpreet Singh Sethi, who was murdered at school in Surrey in day hours.

A large crowd of members of the community and students came out for the candle march from Tamanawis Secondary School to 72 Avenue Scott Road to support the family and demand justice for the 18 year old.

Family and friends mourning Mehakpreet Singh Sethi, 18, came together to share memories of their brother, son and friend.

“In less than a minute, my brother lost his life, and the RCMP is asking my family to be patient”. Mehakpreet’s sister Arshpreet Sethi appealed to the community to come together in support so that what happened to his brother never happened to any other brother or son.

“All [police] can say is ‘We can’t disclose this to you, we can’t disclose that to you,'” Arshpreet said. “We are not getting any answers. The only answer we’re getting is to ‘have faith.'”

The 18-year-old teen was fatally stabbed in the Tamanawis Secondary School parking lot in Surrey’s Newton neighborhood, B.C. on November 22 after he was stabbed in a fight with a 17 year old boy.

Mehakpreet was at the high school on Tuesday to pick up their brother around noon, said Arshpreet. Where he was allegedly stabbed after a quarrel broke out.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) confirmed Monday no charges have been filed, but said investigators are committed to the case.

“We don’t have an update to share at this time but we do have regular contact with the family,” said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti.
