The Canadian government said on Monday that it was actively investigating the allegations on the Indian Government agent for killing a Canada-based Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
Canada’s PM Points the finger at India for Killing Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has released an emergency statement saying that any involvement in the killing of Canadian citizens by the foreign government is an unacceptable violation of our sovereignty. The statement blows the diplomatic ties between the two countries.
Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45 years old, was shot dead outside a Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey, a Vancouver suburb with a large population of Sikhs. Nijjar supported a Sikh homeland as an independent Khalistani Leader and was designated as a terrorist by India in July 2020.
Canadian PM on this has said that Canadian Security agencies were working actively on the allegations of the link of the agents of the Indian government with the death of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He further said that he raised this concern in the G20 meeting last week in New Delhi with PM Narendra Modi and urged the government of India to work with Canada to reach the bottom of this matter.
Foreign Minister of Canada Melanie Joly also announced on Monday the expulsion of the top intelligence agent of India in the country without providing any details.
The Canadian PM’s comment about the death of Hardeep Singh Nijaar has increased the tension between the two countries. And Trudeau said if these are accurate, it will be unacceptable.
