Canadian Police Action in Khalistani terrorist Nijjar murder case, 3 accused Arrested


Canadian police have arrested three Indian citizens in connection with the murder of Khalistani separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. In September last year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused Indian agents of being involved in the murder of Nijjar, after which India and Canada tensions had increased in the relations. India had rejected PM Trudeau's allegations as absurd.

Three Indian citizens arrested

According to the information, now Canadian Police have arrested three Indian citizens. They are accused of having acted as shooter and driver on the day Nijjar was murdered outside the Gurudwara in Surrey, British Columbia.

Najjar was shot dead

Court documents revealed that Karanpreet Singh, Kamalpreet Singh, and Karan Brar are accused of murdering Nijjar and conspiring to murder. The suspects have been identified as Indian citizens. Canadian police have detained Indian nationals, almost a year after Najjar was shot dead. Canada's Defense Minister on Friday refused to confirm the Indian government's connection in this case and said that only the Canadian Police can answer this question in a better way.

Defense Minister Dominic LeBlanc said that I have full confidence in the security apparatus of the Government of Canada and the work of the RCMP and the (Canadian) Security Intelligence Service. According to media reports, the police arrested these people on Friday during a search operation conducted in at least two provinces of Canada. Sources said that a few months ago, the police had identified these people as a group of people involved in the murder of Nijjar and the police were keeping an eye on them.

India targeted Canada

Days, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made some comments related to Khalistani elements in his country, India on Thursday, said that these comments once again reflect the political space given to separatism, extremism, and violence in Canada. Trudeau addressed an event organized on Khalsa Day in Toronto on Sunday in which some pro-Khalistan people participated. Referring to the activities of pro-Khalistan elements, Trudeau reportedly told the media on the sidelines of the event that our job is not to crush political opposition.

India-Canada relations affected

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said in his weekly press conference that Prime Minister Trudeau had made similar comments earlier also. His comments once again reflect the political space given to separatism, extremism, and violence in Canada. When asked about Trudeau's comments, Jaiswal said that it not only affects India-Canada relations but also promotes an environment of violence in Canada that harms its citizens.
