The killers of Indian mobster Jimi Sandhu on Phuket have been named
Phuket police have identified two gunmen wanted for the murder of Indian-born Jimi Sandhu in Phuket, and have issued arrest warrants for 2 Canadian men.
The alleged killers are named 36-year-old Gene Karl Lahrkamp and Matthew Leandre Ovide Dupre, also 36. The arrest warrants follow an intensive investigation by Thai police, forensic evidence gathered from the rented Toyota used by the 2 men and on the 2 weapons found in the shallows of Rawai Beach, which police say were used in the shooting.
In related news, police in Canada are investigating a shooting in Surrey, Vancouver, last Tuesday that left two people hospitalized, one of them in critical condition.
Police believe it may be in retaliation for the shooting of Jimi Sandhu, who was part of British Columbia’s ‘United Nations’ crime gang.
The two gunmen are said to have arrived in Phuket six weeks before the shooting and then left two days after the incident. The two men are 36 years old (although their ages have been variously listed between 27 and 37 in other publications) and are believed to have ties to criminal gangs in the British Columbia region of Canada. One of them is said to have served in the ‘army’, although police gave no further details.
