Abbotsford’s Sidhu Family Makes Public Appeal A Year After Their Son Satkar Singh Sidhu Was Murdered

ABBOTSFORD – On February 20, 2017 at around 9:30 a.m., 23-year-old Satkar Sidhu was shot and killed in the 30500 block of Steelhead Court in Abbotsford.  Emergency first responders rushed to the scene but despite their best efforts, Sidhu succumbed to his injuries.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) continues to actively investigate Sidhu’s murder in consultation with crown counsel and investigators have been diligently following the evidence trail, which has helped in piecing some of the details together.  IHIT still needs anyone with information to come forward.

Sidhu’s family is appealing for the public’s help to identify those responsible for his murder and has prepared the following statement:

Public plea from the family of Satkar Sidhu:

“We remember Satkar’s childhood as normal as any or our childhoods.  He had the biggest dreams, the widest smile and the kindest heart.  His presence would light up a room before he even walked in and his laughter would turn anyone’s day around.  Satkar was the most driven and passionate young man there was; he poured his heart and soul into every step he took in life.  He had almost completed his business degree and had so much life left to live.

“Satkar did not have a criminal record.  We never thought he would die under such horrible circumstances.  There was a complete disregard to public safety as he was murdered during the early morning hours in a quiet residential area.  It has been a full year since we lost him, yet we are still praying for answers and grieving without closure.

“At this time, we would like to request for anyone who may have information about Satkar’s death to please contact the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.  We would be eternally grateful if you are able to provide the police with any information.  Please bear in mind no information is irrelevant and you may remain anonymous.  We are making this appeal particularly to those who knew Satkar and may have valuable information, which can help the police solve his murder.

“There are very few people who come into the world for an extremely short period of time, yet manage to leave behind the greatest impact – Satkar can be described as one of these people.  The void of his presence will always remain, but we hope this public statement will help bring him, and our family, the justice he deserves.”

Thank you.

-The family of Satkar Sidhu
