According to media reports she was from Kapurthala in Punjab, India. ਕੈਨੇਡਾ-ਚ-ਪੰਜਾਬਣ-ਦਾ-ਕਤਲ-4 Kelowna RCMP said on the weekend that their initial investigation suggested a man working at the university assaulted a security guard. He was arrested under the Mental Health Act. They said they were working with the university to investigate the alleged assault and that there was no risk to the public. Kelowna City Councillor Mohini Singh told the media that she wanted to know why Kaur was working the night shift alone. She also wanted to know that if the alleged assailant had a mental health issue, why was he allowed to work at the university where there are so many young students. The councillor said Kaur’s parents are arriving from India later this week. Paramjit Singh Patara, Vice President of the Okanagan Sikh Temple, told the media that the Sikh community is trying to see how best they could support Kaur’s parents.
