CALGARY – Two men were arrested Monday in connection with what investigators believe was the targeted killing of an Indo-Canadian man from Calgary who was found dead in an alley in Harvest Hills area of the city in 2016.
Harsimran Singh Birdi, 20, was discovered in an alley in the 9700 block of Harvest Hills Link N.E. on April 7 last year.
