The grieving parents of a Vancouver teen killed in a gruesome sword attack have filed a lawsuit against their son’s killers.
19-year-old Manraj Akalirai was swarmed by a group of men outside an East Vancouver home in 2013 and was nearly decapitated with a samurai sword.
In November, a B.C. Supreme Court jury found Amritpal Dhillon and Amritpaul Rakhra guilty of manslaughter.
Now the victims parents are suing the pair under the Family Compensation Act for loss of companionship, household and financial assistance, and future investment opportunities.
The lawsuit says the death was “psychologically devastating” to the plaintiffs, triggering nervous shock.
They’re seeking general and special damages.
