Man implicated in honour killing of B.C. woman in India mistakenly granted permanent residency
Darshan Singh Sidhu, one of seven people in India originally implicated in the alleged “honour” killing of a B.C. woman in that country in 2000, was granted a permanent resident visa to Canada by mistake in 2008 after he lied about his criminal record.
The error was revealed in a recent Federal Court decision concerning whether Sidhu’s son, who was granted a visa at the same time, should be allowed to remain in Canada despite the misrepresentations of his father, who has since returned to India.
