Canada PM Trudeau declines to release evidence in India’s link to Nijjar’s killing

Date:

New York : Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday called on to cooperate with an investigation into the killing of a Sikh separatist leader in British Columbia and said Canada would not release its evidence.

Trudeau said on Monday that Ottawa had credible allegations linking Indian government agents to the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in June, prompting an angry reaction from New Delhi.

The Canadian government has amassed both human and signals intelligence in a months-long investigation into the Sikh separatist leader's murder, CBC News separately reported on Thursday citing sources.

Traditional Canadian allies have so far taken a relatively cautious approach to the matter. Political analysts said this was partly because the United States and other major players see India as a counterweight to the growing influence of China.

“There is no question that India is a country of growing importance and a country that we need to continue to work with … and we're not looking to provoke or cause problems,” Trudeau said in a press conference in New York on the sidelines of the annual high-level United Nations General Assembly.

“But we are unequivocal around the importance of the rule of law and unequivocal about the importance of protecting Canadians.”

“That's why we call upon the Government of India to work with us to establish processes to discover and to uncover the truth of the matter.”
