Canada Police arrest suspects in Hardeep Singh Nijjar's murder: Report

| @indiablooms | 03 May 2024, 11:57 pm

Ottawa/IBNS: Canadian Police Friday arrested members of an alleged gang linked to the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia last year, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said on Friday.

According to reports, investigators had identified the suspects in Canada some months ago and had been keeping them under tight surveillance, the CBC said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have not made any comments so far.

In September last year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canadian authorities were pursuing allegations linking Indian government agents to the fatal shooting of Nijjar, a Canadian citizen.

However, India rejected Trudeau's claim as "absurd."

Canada had been pressing India to cooperate in its investigation. The US later revealed it had foiled an assassination attempt against a Sikh separatist on its soil.

The presence of Khalistani terrorists in Canada has long frustrated New Delhi. Nijjar was labelled a "terrorist" by India.
