Toronto: An 18-year-old Indian-origin teenager was stabbed to death in a scuffle at a high school parking lot in Canada’s British Columbia province, police said. According to report, he was stabbed by another teenager but the victim was not a student of the school, the principal confirmed.

The victim was identified as Mehakpreet Sethi, who was stabbed at the Tamanawis Secondary School’s parking lot in Surrey on Tuesday by a 17-year-old following a fight between the two, the Vancouver Sun newspaper reported.

“At this time, it is believed that the suspect and the victim were known to each other and that this was an isolated incident,” Integrated Homicide Investigation Team’s Sgt. Timothy Pierotti was quoted as saying in the report.

The 17-year-old suspect was identified by witnesses and arrested.

Canada’s national police force’s Surrey spokesperson Cpl. Vanessa Munn said police were called about the attack shortly after noon.

“Police arrived within minutes and immediately began life-saving measures,” Munn said.

“The 18-year-old victim was transported to the hospital, however despite all attempts to revive the individual, he has succumbed to his injuries,” she was quoted as saying in the report.
