India Canada Conflict: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken a new step against India over the killing of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Trudeau said Canada shared evidence with New Delhi a few weeks ago that Indian agents were possibly involved in the killing of a Khalistan militant in British Columbia.
Addressing the media in Ottawa, Trudeau said that Canada has shared with India the ‘credible’ allegations that I spoke about on Monday. We shared intelligence with India a few weeks ago. Canadian PM said that we want to work constructively with India. We hope they will cooperate with us so that we can go deeper into this very serious matter.
PM Trudeau, while addressing the Parliament of Canada on Monday, alleged without providing any evidence that agents of the Indian government were involved in the June killing of Khalistan militant Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia. However, India has categorically rejected these allegations, calling them baseless and politically motivated.
Media reports have claimed that the Canadian government has been investigating the killing of Nijjar, a Khalistani terrorist, for a month. The report says that the intelligence includes conversations with Indian officials present in Canada. According to the report, some of the information was provided by an associate involved in the Five Eyes Alliance. The Five Eye Group is an intelligence sharing network that includes the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Canadian Media: Five Eyes provides humanitarian and surveillance evidence
When proof of the allegations against India was sought, the Canadian PM was seen giving defiant answers during the UNGA in New York. Meanwhile, Trudeau robotically repeated the demand for cooperation from India. On the other hand, when pressure to produce evidence mounted, Canadian news channel CBC quoted the intelligence agency as saying they had humanitarian and surveillance-related evidence.
