US relations with India have gradually warmed over the past two decades. Old bitterness is gone. However, due to the death of the Khalistani militant in Canada, will it be torn again? That question has arisen. Meanwhile, a report claimed that Canada is working closely with America on the issue of Nijjar killing.
Khalistani militant Hardeep Singh Nijjar was killed in British Columbia, Canada last June. Government sources said that Canada has received a lot of information from US intelligence in this incident. The report claims that the two countries are working closely to investigate the incident. Meanwhile, evidence of Indian agent’s involvement in this murder has come to Canada. However, it is being kept secret for the sake of investigation.
Before that, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, standing in the Parliament of Canada yesterday, claimed that there were ‘credible allegations of possible Indian complicity’ in the killing of pro-Khalistan militant Hardeep Singh Nijjar. In this situation, Canada informed the close countries of the G7 group like Britain, America about the issue of Nijjar’s killing. Canada has also expelled an Indian diplomat posted in Canada. In view of which India has also asked a Canadian diplomat to leave the country.
Justin Trudeau said in the Parliament of Canada about the killing of pro-Khalistan militant Hardeep Singh Nijjar, “The country’s security agencies have been investigating the death of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar for the past few weeks. Investigations are ongoing based on credible allegations of possible involvement of Indian government agents in the incident. Rule of law prevails in Canada. Protecting our citizens and protecting our sovereignty is our fundamental right.’
Meanwhile, Britain did not want to respond directly to this issue. However, America has expressed concern on this issue. White House National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said, ‘We are deeply concerned about the allegations made by Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau. We are in regular contact with Canada. Canada’s investigation is ongoing. It is very important to bring criminals to justice.’
Meanwhile, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs opened up about the Canadian Prime Minister’s complaint about India’s involvement in the Nijjar murder case. In a statement, India said that anti-India activities on Canadian soil are of grave concern. The Canadian government should stop those activities. And murders and other organized crimes do happen in Canada. Attempts to link India to any killing in this climate are futile. This is being done to divert attention from the growing number of Khalistanis.
