Ottawa, September 19 (KMS): Canadian Member of Parliament (MP), Jagmeet Singh, has vowed to seek justice for Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was killed by the agents of Indian government in Canada, earlier this year.
Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, was shot dead outside a Sikh temple on June 18 in Surrey city of Vancouver district. Nijjar supported Khalistan state, an independent homeland for the Sikhs, by separating Punjab from India.
Jagmeet Singh in a post on X, formerly twitter, wrote, “Today we learned of allegations that agents of the Indian Government murdered Hardeep Singh Nijjar – a Canadian killed on Canadian soil.” Jagmeet said he will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice, including holding the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, accountable.
His remark came hours after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed Indian government’s involvement in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Justin Trudeau in an emergency statement to the House of Commons said that the intelligence agencies of the country were “actively pursuing credible allegations” linking the Indian government agents to the murder of the Sikh leader. Canada also expelled India’s top diplomat for his role in the murder of Hardeep Singh. The expelled Indian diplomat, Pavan Kumar Rai, has been identified by the Canadian authorities as the head in Canada of India’s notorious intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). In a retaliatory move, India also expelled a Canadian diplomat with five days’ notice to leave the country.
