Police are on the hunt for two or more killers after a 24-year-old Brampton man who was brutally attacked in a Mississauga carjacking last week died from his injuries in hospital.

Homicide investigators with Peel Regional Police say Gurvinder Nath died in hospital this past Friday (July 14), five days after being beaten and left for dead at the side of the road as he delivered food to an address in the Britannia and Creditview Rds. area of northwest Mississauga.

That area of the city has been plagued by gun violence and deaths in the last couple of years.

Police say Nath, working as a food delivery driver, had just arrived at his destination at 2:10 a.m. on July 9 when he was confronted “by unknown suspects who attempted to take his vehicle.”

A physical altercation followed, according to police, and Nath was left on the road suffering from his injuries as the culprits sped away in his vehicle.

The Brampton man was rushed to hospital soon after the attack, but succumbed to his injuries five days later.

Police didn’t say how many culprits they’re seeking in connection with the attack.

The stolen vehicle was recovered by police a short time later near Old Derry and Creditview Rds., not far from the scene of the violent carjacking.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have dashcam footage to contact police at 905-453-3311, ext. 3410, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
