RCMP: no leads in arson attack
Two weeks after an attack on city councillor Surinderpal Rathor’s home, RCMP said they have made no progress solving the crime.
“We are still actively investigating,” Brown updated the Tribune Tuesday. “We are doing file reviews on past arsons to see if there are any connections. We are exhausting all avenues.”
Rathor’s home on Moon Avenue was attacked with Molotov cocktails two times within 90 minutes.
At the time police said witnesses observed someone running west on Moon Avenue from the scene, getting into a dark SUV which then travelled north on Midnight Drive.
Rathor and his wife escaped unharmed, however, police said the potential for loss of life and home was significant.
