PM Trudeau says Canada shared evidence on Nijjar’s killing with India many weeks ago

Ottawa: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that Canada shared with India evidence of ‘credible allegations’ about the involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, many weeks ago and wants New Delhi to commit constructively with Ottawa to establish the facts on this serious matter.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Justin Trudeau addressing a press conference with the visiting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said, “I just want to simply say that we’ve shared those allegations, those credible allegations with India for weeks. We are working with our partners.”

“And what we are asking is for India, to commit constructively with Canada to establish the facts on this situation. We’re there to work with them. And we have been for weeks now,” he said in response to a question.

He said, “Canada has shared the credible allegations that I talked about on Monday with India. We did that many weeks ago…We hope that they engage with us so that we can get to the bottom of this very serious matter. That’s important.”

Tensions flared between India and Canada early this week following Trudeau’s announcement of the potential involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Sikh leader on his country’s soil on June 18 in British Columbia.

According to a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Canada’s allegations of India’s involvement in the killing of Nijjar are based on both human and signals intelligence.
