Brampton (Canada). Canada News: Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has stated that his statement in the House of Commons on September 18 about “credible allegations” linking Indian agents to the killing of pro-Khalistan figure Hardeep Singh Nijjar was intended to deter New Delhi from taking similar actions in the country in the future.

In an interview with the Canadian Press, Trudeau said, “We felt that all the quiet diplomacy and all the measures that we put in, and ensured that our security services put in to keep people safe in the community, needed a further level of deterrence, perhaps of saying publicly and loudly that we know, or we have credible reasons to believe, that the Indian government was behind this.”

He went on to say, “And, therefore, put a chill on them continuing or considering doing anything like this. Too many Canadians were worried that they were vulnerable.”

Trudeau also stated that Canada will reveal evidence supporting the allegations of an Indian connection to Nijjar’s murder on June 18 in Surrey, but only later.

In response to an Indian national’s indictment in a US Federal Court for an alleged plot to kill Sikhs for Justice or SFJ general counsel Gurpatwant Pannun, and why Canada has not made similar information public, Trudeau stated, “Canada is investigating a murder, and there are different stakes involved in that, and our justice system has different processes.” However, he stated that this was “unfolding.”
