New Delhi, December 15, 2023: Home Minister Amit Shah spoke on Thursday about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegations of the “potential” involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Khalistani separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Amit Shah, reiterating India’s position on the matter, dismissed the allegations related to the June 18 killing in Surrey, instead asking, “What are terrorists wanted in India doing in Canada?”

“We categorically deny these allegations.” “They (the Canadian government) should also explain what terrorists wanted in India were doing in Canada,” Shah said during a discussion at Agenda AajTak 2023.

Nijjar was designated a terrorist by India in 2020. Following Trudeau’s allegations on September 18, relations between India and Canada were severely strained.

In the days following Trudeau’s allegations in September, India temporarily suspended visa issuance to Canadian citizens. Last month, India resumed some visa services in Canada, more than a month after they had been suspended.
