A Sikh woman, Davinder Kaur, who was considering divorcing her estranged husband Nav Nishan Singh, was stabbed Friday in Brampton, Canada, CBC News reported.

Citing Peel Regional Police, CBC News reported that officers received a 911 call for medical assistance at the park around 6 p.m.

Singh, 44, was charged with first-degree murder and appeared in court in Brampton on Saturday, reported CBC News, the country’s 24-hour news channel part of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Davinder Kaur, 43, was stabbed after agreeing to meet her estranged husband at Sparrow Park, near Cherrytree Drive and Sparrow Court.

According to her brother Lakhwinder Singh, who lives in the US, Ms Kaur was thinking of divorcing her husband, Mr Singh. He mentioned that her husband left six months ago.

According to her brother, the couple had been married for more than 20 years and had four children together. CBC News reported that three of them live in Brampton and one in India.

Ms Kaur was discovered by emergency staff with “obvious signs of trauma”. Despite the efforts of Peel Ambulance to save her life, she died at the scene. Her husband was found by the police approximately 2 km away.

Advocacy group Peel Committee Against Abuse of Women (PCAWA) said in a statement that it was “outraged and deeply saddened” by the news that Ms. Kaur was allegedly killed by her husband, CBC News reported.

Earlier in March, another such stabbing incident came to light when a man of Indian origin stabbed a 37-year-old man outside a Canadian Vancouver Starbucks cafe and was charged with second-degree murder, Global News reported citing local police.

The suspect, 32-year-old Inderdeep Singh Gosal, was arrested at the scene.

Paul Stanley Schmidt, 37, was stabbed outside a coffee shop on the corner of Granville and West Pender streets on Sunday around 5:40 p.m. after a “brief altercation,” police said.

Giving more details about the incident, Alex Bodger, an eyewitness, said it was very traumatizing to see and hear, reports Global News.

“It’s not something you think you’d see walking down the street in Vancouver on a Sunday,” he said.
