Two more men have been arrested and charged in connection with the 2017 murder of Bhavkiran “Kiran” Dhesi.

The arrests, which were announced Friday by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), bring the total number of people charged in connection to the crime to five.

Court records show Gurvinder Singh Deo, 25, and Talwinder Singh Khun Khun, 22, have both been charged with accessory after the fact to murder and interference with a dead body.

Harjot Singh Deo, 21, was charged with second-degree murder in May for allegedly killing his ex-girlfriend Dhesi. On Friday, he was also charged with interference with a dead body.

The accessory charge had previously been laid in May against 53-year-old Manjit Kaur Deo and 23-year-old Inderdeep Kaur Deo, who are Harjot Deo’s mother and sister, respectively.

On Saturday, Cpl. David Lee with IHIT confirmed Gurvinder Deo is the brother of Harjot Deo, while Khun Khun is an “extended family member.”

Lee went on to suggest still more charges and arrests could be coming in connection to the nearly two-year-old crime.

“There are still people involved,” he said. “We are still pursuing the investigation, and it is not over yet.”

Lee said investigators also believe more people have information about what happened, and urged those people to come forward to investigators.

“There are always people out there who know of what happened, and either saw what happened or was told by friends or family,” he said.

Dhesi’s body was found in a burned-out SUV near 24 Avenue and 187 Street in Surrey in August 2017.

The 19-year-old was a student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and had received a kidney transplant just a few months before her death.

IHIT said in May that Harjot Deo and Dhesi were “involved in a romantic relationship.”

Harjot Deo was in court Friday along with his mother and sister. All three are due back on July 3.
