On behalf of the Members of Brampton City Council, I want to express my shock by the tragic development that happened in Brampton last night. This is a horrific and senseless loss of life of an 11 year old child.
I have spoken to Acting Peel Regional Police Chief Chris McCord about this isolated incident. I want to thank citizens who responded to the Amber Alert. Tips led the Ontario Provincial Police to apprehend the suspect in Oro-Medonte. I am confident Peel Regional Police will do a thorough investigation of this death.
My thoughts are with the Rajkumar family and friends. I know our community will provide support to this family. All City of Brampton facilities will lower their flags to half mast in honour of Riya.
