“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada said on Monday that ‘agents of the government of India’ had carried out the assassination of a Sikh community leader in British Columbia in June …. Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr. Trudeau said that he had raised India’s involvement in the shooting of the Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, directly with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Group of 20 summit meeting earlier this month ‘in no uncertain terms.’ He said the allegation was based on intelligence gathered by the Canadian government. … Melanie Joly, the foreign minister, later announced that Canada had expelled an Indian diplomat whom she described as the head of India’s intelligence agency in Canada. India’s foreign ministry rejected the Canadian allegations on Tuesday morning as ‘absurd’ and politically motivated, saying that Canada had long provided shelter to ‘Khalistani terrorists and extremists’ who threaten India’s security.”
