Gangster Vijay Ganesh Singh loses appeal

Puneet Singh Chhina and Harjinder Singh Sandhu
Former Burnaby resident Vijay Ganesh Singh was convicted in the murder of two men whose bodies were found in the trunk of a car in Pickering, Ontario in 2009. He has lost an appeal of his murder conviction at the Ontario Court of Appeal. Vijay Ganesh Singh is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 23 years. In 2013, a jury found him and co-accused, John Le, guilty of two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of kidnapping. It related to the killings of Harjinder Singh Sandhu, 29, and Puneet Singh Chhina, 26, who were bound, shot and stuffed into the trunk of a car abandoned in Pickering on May 5, 2009.
In early 2009, Vijay Ganesh Singh arranged for a 35 kg cocaine shipment from Los Angeles to Toronto. When the shipment arrived, it was actually packages of drywall. The cocaine belonged to one “Ahmun,” who was the leader of the United Nations Gang. Singh needed to recover the cocaine shipment or at least find out who stole it. He suspected Sandhu had been the “jacker” and lured him to his death. Chhina was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The trial judge found little to mitigate sentences, saying that "‘these offences qualify for the description as among the worst group of offences and that Le and Singh are among the worst group of offenders.’” Singh was suspected in the hit on Bikramjit Dhindsa in May 2019.
