Post: Canada accuses India of involvement in murder


Canada’s prime minister says he was involved in the murder of a Canadian citizen in Surrey, India. An Indian diplomat will be deported.

In a high-profile move, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused the Indian government of murdering a Canadian citizen.

In recent weeks, Canadian security agencies have been actively pursuing credible allegations of a possible link between Indian government agents and the murder of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Nijjar was shot dead in June

Nijjar, a well-known supporter of an independent Sikh state on Indian soil, was shot dead outside a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, in June.

A large number of people of Indian origin live in Canada. A particularly large number of them belong to the Sikh religious community.

India: Negative attitude towards Sikh organization

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently expressed his opposition to the so-called Khalistan movement, of which Nijjar is a member, without directly mentioning his name, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in New Delhi.

Modi said this, according to his office, encouraged separatism and incited violence against Indian diplomats as certain parts of the country seceded from an existing state.

The New Delhi government accuses Canada of turning a blind eye to the activities of radical Sikh nationalists.

Trudeau: Perpetrators should be held accountable

“There is an unacceptable violation of our sovereignty,” Prime Minister Trudeau told Parliament. He also said:

Every step must be taken to bring the perpetrators of this murder to justice.
