A list of the most dangerous offenders in Canada associated with severe violence has been released by the Canadian Police. It's interesting to note that nine of the list's eleven males are of Indian descent. The police warned the public to stay away from these individuals. The warning was issued on Wednesday by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC), Vancouver Police, and BC Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

As a result of their continued engagement in gang disputes and connections to very violent situations, 11 people have been identified as posing a serious threat to public safety, according to a tweet from CFSEU-BC.

The names on the list are Shakiel Basra (28), Amarpreet Samra (28), Jagdeep Cheema (30), Ravinder Sarma (35) Barinder Dhaliwal (39) Andy St. Pierre (40) Gurpreet Dhaliwal (35) Richard Joseph Whitlock (40), Amroop Gill (29), Sukhdeep Pansal (33) and Sumdish Gill (28).

The police issued a warning that anyone around these individuals is placing themselves at danger. The named guys might be the target of violence from rival gang members, according to CFSEU Assistant Commander Manny Mann, who also noted that the listed men pose a threat to their friends and families as well as onlookers. According to him, "We want British Columbians to recognise their faces."

The warning comes after Meninder Dhaliwal, who was on the 11-man list from the previous year, was shot and killed in Whistler late last month in broad daylight. According to the police, his brother Harpreet was the victim of a shooting in Vancouver's Coal Harbour last year. Gurpreet Dhaliwal, a 35-year-old brother, is also included on the list this year.
