Judge orders release of the man who has been accused of beating stranger with autism


Judge has recently ordered the release of a man who wan caught on video in March beating a stranger with autism in a bus terminal in Mississauga.

Ronjot Singh Dhami pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in connection with the group beating of a 29-year-old man with autism at a bus station near Mississauga’s Square One Mall on March 13.

He was sentenced to 12 months in jail and two years of probation. But because of extra credit given for time served pre-trial, Dhami will be released.

The assault was captured on surveillance cameras that showed the victim lacing some roller skates when three males approach him, stomp on, kick and punch him.

Dhami surrendered to police after a week of the assault and has been confined since. Two other suspects were later arrested and charged in relation to the incident.

“I’m sorry for what I have done,” Dhami told the judge in court today.

Parmvir Singh Chahil was also charged with aggravated assault in connection with the incident. He was arrested in March in Windsor and released on $25,000 bail.

The third suspect, Jaspaul Uppal, has also charged with aggravated assault in connection with the beating. He turned himself in to police in Abbotsford in May.

Under the terms of his probation, Dhami must stay 500 metres away from the victim’s residence, must not contact two other men accused in the assault and will submit a DNA sample. He must also stay away from the bus terminal.

Dhami is also under a lifetime weapons prohibition.
