On March 19, Bassi was attacked and beaten to death by a mob with sticks on the grounds of Sandalwood Heights Secondary School, between 5 and 6 p.m. He was rushed to hospital, critically injured and losing blood. He survived for another six hours thanks to blood donations, but surgery couldn’t save him and he died with his family by his side.

His family is working to organize events in his memory to create a sense of community in Brampton and try to address violence in the city. They are hoping to encourage a diverse group of donors.
Canadian Blood Services reports that 20 per cent of Canadians identify as being a member of an ethnic minority group, but they represent only about 4 per cent of blood donors.
