Justin Trudeau: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given a frustrated statement after being reprimanded in the G-20 summit in the case of Khalistani terrorists. PM Trudeau has said in the House of Commons in Ottawa that Canadian security agencies are investigating the connection between the Indian government and the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Trudeau said that the involvement of any other country or foreign government in the murder of a Canadian citizen on its own soil will not be tolerated. With Trudeau's statement, relations between India and Canada are likely to increase.

Terrorist Nijjar was murdered on June 18

Let us tell you that Trudeau has called Nijjar's murder a violation of his country's sovereignty. Along with his statement, Canada has also announced the expulsion of an Indian diplomat. Canada's Foreign Minister Melanie Jolly, while announcing the expulsion of the diplomat, said that her country will protect its citizens at all costs. Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar had been declared a fugitive by the NIA. On June 18 this year, terrorist Nijjar was shot dead while he was standing in the parking lot of a Gurudwara in British Columbia, Canada.

‘Canada is a law abiding country’

Justin Trudeau has said that he had also talked to PM Modi about this during the G-20 summit. He also claimed that he had raised this issue with the Government of India during his visit to Delhi. Trudeau said in the Canadian Parliament, 'For the past few weeks, Canadian security agencies have been actively investigating credible allegations of possible connections between Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar and the Government of India. Canada is a law abiding country. Our first priority has been that our security agencies and law enforcement agencies ensure the safety of all Canadians.

‘All necessary steps are being taken’

Trudeau said, 'All necessary steps are being taken to bring the culprits of this murder to justice. Canada had raised this issue with top officials and security officials of the Indian government. The involvement of a foreign government in the murder of any Canadian citizen on our own soil is a violation of our sovereignty. We are working closely with our partners on this very serious matter. I strongly request the Government of India to cooperate with Canada to get to the bottom of this matter.
