UPDATED: IHIT takes over assault investigation


The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said one man has been charged in a violent assault on the border of Surrey and Langley.

On Sunday at about noon, Surrey RCMP were called to the 19400 block of 32nd Avenue, said Sgt. Bari Emam of IHIT.

A woman with life-threatening injuries was found at the home and was airlifted to hospital for emergency treatment.

The woman remains on life support as of Monday afternoon.

On Monday, IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound announced that Baldev Singh Kalsi, 66, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault.

Kalsi is the victim’s husband.

“This tragic incident is domestic related and not a random attack,” said Pound. “The victim remains in hospital on life support and in critical condition. Her family has been notified.”

IHIT officers remained at the home through Monday to canvass the neighbours and to process evidence at the scene. Kalsi was set to appear in court on July 16.
