Police have arrested two men in connection with the murder of Annushath Indrakathan. Vikas Dahiya, 21, of Toronto, and Antriksh Singh, 19, of Markham, were arrested and charged with first degree murder.

Looks like there may be a war amongst the Tamils as a second young man in a little more than a week has lost his life once again after being swarmed by a group of men. The victim has been identified as 19 year old Annushath Indrakanthan.

Around 12:30 p.m. yesterday, Annushath Indrakanthan was attacked outside a plaza around Birchmount Rd. and Sheppard Ave. E. About as many as five men beat him with several weapons, including a hammer, and stabbed him.

This was not far away from where Kristian Thanapalan, 22, was beaten to death by a group of Tamil youths and men, armed with baseball or cricket bats, in the early-morning hours of July 11. The men believed involved fled across the street following the killing and jumped into a white vehicle.

Shooting in Jungle

As many as 23 bullets were found at a scene where a man was wounded today. Trouble began at 5pm when the victim who was riding a bike tried to run away from the melee of bullets coming his way. Witnesses report seeing the victim drop his bicycle and sunglasses and begin running. The suspects supposedly took off in a silver BMW.

The victim was hit two times and will be alright. The victim was later identified as Wayne Lewis. He is the brother of Michael Lewis, a respected man who was shot to death while trying to break up a fight nearby eight years ago.


Three men heard the words that they dreaded might come there way for the last 2 months. Tyshan Riley, 26, Phillip Atkins, 26, and Jason Wisdom, 23 were convicted of first-degree murder, attempted murder, and committing murder for the benefit of a criminal organization. They will spend at least the next 25 years of their life in prison. The courtroom was filled with anger and emotion as the three men, while locked in the booth began yelling and banging on the glass almost breaking it. Mothers for the men, broke down in tears unable to compose themselves after realizing they will now see their sons behind bars.

Wisdom had tears streaming down his face as he stood the face the jury. "I told the truth," he yelled out. His mother, Marcia, who had testified for her son, yelled "I know you were home.""I love you, Mom. You raised a good kid, you know that," Atkins shouted to his mother. Riley's (left) girlfriend Dana Lee Williams, who attended every day of the trial, was crying as she shouted, "It's okay, baby, it's the system. They want to show they did something for society."

A heated war between Malvern and Galloway is what started all of this. Norris Allen was killed and once this happened, the Galloway boys felt the need to carry out their revenge. Supposedly these three men participated in drive-by's in Malvern that consisted of shooting innocent people. One of these innocent people was Brenton Charlton and Leonard Bell who was shot multiple times however he survived.

Very sad to see that these men will no longer see outside however, I am somewhat relieved. I can only imagine what this summer would be like with these trigger happy men who felt it was okay to drive in a community and terrorize it because their leader was killed. Let this be a lesson, no crime goes unpunished.

Jury Convicts in Latchana Slaying

A jury found Jason Hay (pictured) guilty of manslaughter in the death of David Latchana. The seven women and five men on the jury reached their verdict late this afternoon in their third day of deliberation in a Brampton courtroom. Hay originally denied being in the area at the time of the shooting, and another man charged Demar Duntin, says he acted alone in the shooting but the jury was not convinced.

Crown prosecutors Steve Sherriff and John Raftery argued Hay was in on the planned execution and was armed when he and Duntin went to the booze can known as Paulette's to settle a score. Latchana's sister Joella identified Hay, aka "Digit" as being there. She testified she saw him pass what she thought was a weapon to the gunman just seconds before her brother was shot to death.

Homicide #28 - Kristian Thanapalan

22 year old Kristian Thanapalan was just trying to play a game of volleyball around when a group of men decided to take his life.

Thanapalan had been out with five friends playing volleyball around Kennedy and 401 when 15-20 men playing either baseball or cricket felt the need to cause trouble. The lights went out between 11 and 11:30pm. Both games ended and both groups moved to the parking lot.

Words were then exchanged in the parking lot. Kristian and his friends would then be surrounded by at least 6 men, armed with weapons including baseball bats, cricket bats, and beers. At 12:15am and Saturday morning police found Thanapalan collapsed on the road. He died later in hospital from blunt force trauma to the head.

Police have not provided a description of the suspects as of yet, but are asking anyone that may have been in the area, to contact police. Another life lost so senselessly.
