Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday said that the country’s security agencies were investigating a link between the Indian government and the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on June 18.
“Canadian security agencies have been actively pursuing credible allegations of a potential link between agents of the Government of India and the killing of a Canadian citizen, Hardeep Singh Nijjar,” Trudeau said while speaking at the House of Commons in Ottawa.
Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, wanted by the Indian government, was killed in a targeted shooting in Canada’s Surrey on June 18 this year. Nijjar was shot dead outside a gurdwara in Canada.
Trudeau said that he had brought up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G20 Summit as well.
“Canada has declared its deep concerns to the top intelligence security officials of the Indian government. Last week, at the G20, I brought them personally and directly to Prime Minister Modi in no uncertain terms,” the Canadian Prime Minister said.
