How does the Sikh community view this? Are these guys divisive among Sikh Canadians? Are they well regarded or mostly despised?

I’d imagine a number would be afraid to state their feelings publicly.  I did note one person being interviewed  saying the individual did a lot of things for the local community.  But then added he was one bad apple.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says charges have been laid in the July 14 murder of controversial Surrey businessman Ripudaman Singh Malik.

Malik, who was acquitted of murder charges in the 1985 Air India bombing, was shot to death as he arrived at his business in an industrial complex at 8236 128 Street.

Tanner Fox, 21, and Jose Lopez, 23, are charged with first-degree murder.

Both are due to appear in Surrey provincial court today.

Both have faced charges for violent crime long before the Malik murder.




Lopez was charged in Kelowna last summer with nine criminal counts, including possession of a firearm with ammunition, pointing a gun, violating a court order to possess firearms and resisting arrest. The matter was sent from provincial court to Supreme Court last October.

Dan McLaughlin, spokesman for the B.C. Prosecution Service, said Wednesday that Lopez is next due in court on the gun charges in November with a trial date in Kelowna of Dec. 5.

“He was ordered released on these charges on $5,000 cash bail with conditions on July 30, 2021,” McLaughlin said. “The BCPS opposed his release.”

Lopez was also convicted in September 2019 of assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon for an incident in Abbotsford a year earlier. He got an 18-month conditional sentence and a 10-year firearms prohibition.
