The community is rallying behind the family of a Brampton woman allegedly stabbed to death by her husband last week.

Davinder Kaur was killed in Brampton on Friday (May 19), Peel Regional Police said. The 43-year-old woman was found suffering from stab wounds at Sparrow Park near Hummingbird Cr. and Cherrytree Dr. around 6:00 p.m.

Life-saving efforts were attempted by first responders but Kaur died from her injuries at the scene, police said. A short distance from the scene, police arrested and charged 43-year-old Nav Nishan Singh from Brampton with first-degree murder in the killing.

Family members grieving the loss say the accused is Kaur’s husband, and that the 43-year-old woman was stabbed multiple times by her attacker.

A GoFundMe page has been started to raise funds and help with funeral arrangements and support Kaur’s children. As of 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, the fundraiser had received nearly $2,100 in donations of a $25,000 goal.

Kaur’s death is at least the third suspected case of a woman of South Asian descent in Mississauga or Brampton being killed as a result of intimate partner violence.

Brampton woman Pawanpreet Kaur was shot and killed in December while working at the Petro-Canada gas station in Mississauga. Dharam Singh Dhaliwal is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for first-degree murder in the death of Pawanpreet, and the two are believed to have been in a relationship.

And in September, 22-year-old Chandanpreet Kaur was stabbed and killed at a busy Mississauga Canadian Tire, and police have charged her husband Charanjeet Singh with first-degree murder.

The investigation into Davinder Kaur’s death is ongoing anyone with information regarding the stabbing or has surveillance or dashcam footage from the area to contact investigators at 905-453-2121 ext. 3205.
