Police have found two weapons on a beach in Phuket that they believe were used in the recent murder of 32-year-old Jimi Sandhu aka “Slice”, a notorious gangster from Canada. Born in India, Sandhu was deported from Canada in 2016 for “serious crime”. He entered Thailand on January 27 on a private jet with a fake Canadian passport named “Mandeep Singh”.
Phuket detectives used metal detectors to search the shoreline at the Rawai Beach villa where Sandhu was killed and found a semi-automatic Walther PPK and a CZ pistol in the water. According to reports in Thai media, the weapons were registered to Thais who are so-called “influential”, they will be questioned.
The police believe that the two main suspects in this murder would have left Thailand on February 6.
Yesterday, police said they had obtained CCTV video footage showing two men wearing white hoodies, hooded up, approaching the property from the bushes. Officers say the men shot at Sandhu at 10:56 p.m. last Friday before fleeing the crime scene. His body was not found until the next morning in the villa’s parking lot.
According to the Vancouver Sun, Sandhu was a high-profile mobster who continued to exert influence in British Columbia after he was deported.
