Trudeau Repeats Unsubstantiated Claim About India’s Role in Nijjar’s Killing:
Trudeau Reiterates Accusations Against India, Citing “Credible Reasons” in Nijjar Killing Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday reiterated his country’s commitment to the international rules-based order and repeated his allegations regarding India’s involvement in the killing of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
He stated that there are “credible reasons” to believe this assertion. Speaking at a press conference at Canada’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York, Justin emphasized the importance of upholding the rule of law.
He called upon the Government of India to take the matter seriously, cooperate for full transparency, and ensure accountability and justice in the case. Justin also mentioned his direct and frank conversation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the issue.
India had previously rejected these allegations when raised by Justin during his visit to India for the G20 Summit. The Indian External Affairs Ministry responded to the allegations by confirming that Prime Minister Modi had rejected them and highlighted the lack of specific information provided by Canada to support the claims.
As tensions between Canada and India continue, Indian nationals and students in Canada have been advised to exercise caution and avoid areas with growing anti-India activities. Additionally, India’s visa processing center in Canada has temporarily suspended its services.
Trudeau had accused the Indian government of involvement in the fatal shooting of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was designated a terrorist in India. Najjar was killed in Canada’s Surrey, British Columbia, on June 18, and Trudeau’s claims have led to diplomatic tensions between the two countries.
