A preliminary inquiry has been set in the second-degree murder case of a former high-ranking member of Surrey’s Sikh community.

Narinder KalsiThe proceedings against Baldev Singh Kalsi – to determine if there is enough evidence to warrant a criminal trial – are scheduled to take place over three days starting June 13, 2016 in Surrey Provincial Court.

Kalsi – former president of the Gurdwara Sahib Brookside temple – was arrested in South Surrey last July 14, after police found his wife in severe medical distress at a home in the 19400-block of 32 Avenue. She was airlifted to hospital and placed on life support.

Police at the time described the incident as “domestic-related and not a random attack.”

Initially charged with aggravated assault, then attempted murder, the charge against Kalsi was upgraded to second-degree murder less than a week later, after Narinder Kaur Kalsi was taken off of life support and pronounced dead.
