Police have arrested and charged two men after a fatal assault in Brampton on Monday.

Shortly before 6 p.m., police responded to the area of Sandalwood Parkway East and Torbram Road after hearing of an assault.

They found the victim, 21-year-old Paviter Singh Bassi, with life-threatening head injuries.

Paramedics took him to a Toronto hospital, but he died on Tuesday.

That same day, police arrested and charged 22-year-old Karanvir Singh Bassi (no relation) and charged him with first-degree murder.

Then on Wednesday, investigators arrested a second suspect Guryodh Singh Khattra, 22, of Brampton, and also charged him with first degree murder.

Both men appeared in court this week for bail hearings.

Investigators are asking for anyone with information, dashcam video or surveillance video to call them.
