India Suspends Visas for Canadians After Trudeau Accuses Modi Government of Killing Sikh Leader

HeadlineSep 22, 2023

India has suspended visas for Canadian nationals after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday claimed the Indian government was involved in the June assassination of a Sikh community leader and Canadian citizen, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in British Columbia. India rejected the claim and accused Canada of harboring Sikh separatist terrorists. Both countries have expelled diplomats. The AP is reporting Canada’s claim is based on surveillance of Indian diplomats in Canada and intelligence provided by an unnamed ally from the “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing alliance, which includes the U.S., the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.
