BRAMPTON: Indo-Canadian man Parmvir ‘Parm’ Singh Chahil, 21, who was arrested in Windsor on March 24, for attacking an autistic man at the Square One bus stand in Mississauga on March 13, was granted bail by Brampton court Wednesday.

Chahil was granted bail on surety of $25,000 by his family members.

Chahil reportedly suffered a beating inside Maplehurst Correctional Centre where he was sent after his arrest because he had bruises on his face during court appearance.

He was represented by Amandeep Sidhu who flew in from British Columbia for the bail hearing.

Justice of the Peace Christina Santos granted him the bail despite the plea by the Peel Crown Attorney’s Office that Chahil should be denied bail.

Chahil was one the three accused wanted in a Canada-wide warrant issued after the March 13 attack on the autistic man. Ronjot Singh Dhami, 25, was another person wanted by the police.

Chahil, was arrested along with his mother Hardip Padda, 44, and his younger brother Harmanvir Chahil, 18, from Windsor on March 23. While his mother and younger brother were released on a Promise to Appear before an Ontario Court of Justice in Windsor on May 2, Chahil was charged with one count of Aggravated Assaut.

Ronjot Singh Dhami too surrendered to Peel Regional Police on March 25. He was charged with one count of Aggravated Assault.

Police are still looking for the third suspect in the case.
