India says Canada has shown no evidence of its alleged involvement in murder of Sikh separatist leader


India states that Canada has not presented any evidence to support its alleged involvement in the murder of a Sikh separatist leader.

Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead in Canada last year.

Three Indian men have been arrested and charged with his murder. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged Indian involvement, but India denies this and says no evidence has been shared with them.

The suspects’ next court appearance is scheduled for May 21.

Canada Informs India of Sikh Separatist Leader Murder Arrests, But Evidence of Indian Involvement Remains Unsharedpen

India’s External Affairs Ministry acknowledged receiving news from Canada about the arrest of three Indian men charged with the 2023 murder of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia. However, they emphasized that Canada hasn’t provided any concrete evidence supporting alleged Indian involvement in the case.

Spokesman Randhir Jaiswal confirmed ongoing diplomatic discussions with Canada but raised concerns about their sheltering individuals advocating violence against India. He further criticized Canada for granting entry and residency to suspected Indian organized criminals, with several extradition requests still pending.

Jaiswal added that Indian diplomats have faced threats and obstructions while performing their duties. These issues, alongside the Nijjar case, are being addressed through diplomatic channels.

The arrests come after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sparked a diplomatic dispute last year by mentioning “credible allegations” of Indian involvement in Nijjar’s killing. India vehemently denied these accusations.

The three suspects, Kamalpreet Singh (22), Karan Brar (22), and Karanpreet Singh (28), appeared in court virtually on Tuesday, opting for an English-language trial. Their next court date is scheduled for May 21st in British Columbia Provincial Court. It’s worth noting that they haven’t yet requested assistance from Indian diplomats in Canada.
