“We are equally concerned and frustrated to have to come before you again to address a series of recent events related to drug trafficking and gang violence,” added Will Ng, Deputy Commander of the Colombia RCMP. -British.
This is the second time Canadian law enforcement has warned the public to stay away from certain people. The warning comes just weeks after Meninder Dhaliwal, who was on last year’s most wanted list, was shot dead. Dhaliwal’s brother, Harpreet, was also shot dead last year. Another brother, Gurpreet, is on this year’s list.
