The chief of Canada's intelligence agency has visited India twice this year in connection with the Nijjar murder case.

After the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the Canadian Intelligence Department (CSIS) came to India secretly twice in February and March this year. This information was given by CSIS Director David Vigneault himself on Sunday (May 9). He said that they had come to India to give information related to the murder of Nijjar to the Indian authorities.

Nijjar was shot dead while leaving a gurdwara in the city of Surrey on the evening of June 18, 2023. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on September 18 last year accused the Indian government of being involved in Nijjar's murder, which India denied.

Information about this visit of CSIS has come to light when Canada has arrested 4 Indian citizens in the Nijjar murder case last month. Last month, 22-year-old Karan Brar, 22-year-old Kamalpreet Singh and 28-year-old Karanpreet Singh, who live in Edmonton, were arrested on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. After this, the fourth Indian Amandeep Singh was arrested by Canadian authorities.

The police had said that the names of the accused are Karan Brar, Karanpreet Singh and Kamalpreet Singh. The ages of all three are between 20-30 years.

'Canada gives visas to people who are wanted in India'
After these arrests, Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar had alleged that Canada gives visas to those who are wanted in India. He had said that 'people from Punjab associated with organized crime are welcomed in Canada.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is investigating this murder. Canadian officials also admitted that some people associated with CSIS had gone to India, but they refused to give information about what CSIS had discussed with Indian officials.

Canadian officials said – we are sharing information with India
Canadian officials said that CSIS is constantly sharing information about the murder with Indian officials. They said that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has also reiterated the same thing many times. Canadian officials said that initial investigation of the case is going on and accountability of the people involved is being ensured.

This is in the interests of both countries. The RCMP is investigating independently. However, so far Indian officials have not shared any information on CSIS's visit to India.

The incident happened on June 18; PM Trudeau accused India three months later.

India had expelled 41 Canadian diplomats
After Canada's allegations, India suspended visa services for its people. 41 Canadian diplomats were also expelled. However, later talks took place at the diplomatic level and visa services were restored after a few months.

Canada had said that it would provide evidence of India's involvement in the murder, which it has not provided so far. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar has been accusing the Trudeau government of sheltering Khalistani terrorists several times from different platforms. However, a few days ago, the Canadian Foreign Minister had said that India is cooperating in the investigation of Nijjar's murder.

Who was Hardeep Singh Nijjar, over whom all the commotion took place?

  • There is a village named Bhar Singh Pura in Jalandhar district of Punjab. Hardeep Singh Nijjar was born here on 11 October 1977. In 1984, Nijjar was only 7 years old when two big incidents took place in the country…
  • 1. Operation Blue Star 2. Assassination of Indira Gandhi.
  • Both these incidents had an impact on every village in Punjab. At this time, the Khalistan movement was at its peak in the state. Boys between the ages of 12 and 15 were joining the Khalistan movement. Hardeep Singh Nijjar also joined it at this age.
  • Soon Nijjar was identified as an active member of the extremist organization Khalistan Tiger Force, i.e. KTF. Gradually he became the mastermind of this organization. In 1995, Punjab Police was conducting an operation against Khalistani militants across the state. At this time Nijjar was also arrested.
  • As soon as he was released from jail, he started preparing to flee to Canada. According to a report in the Canadian newspaper Toronto Sun, Nijjar left the country in 1997 after being targeted by Indian security agencies. In his immigration application on 9 June 1998, Nijjar has mentioned about his arrival in Canada.
  • Nijjar had stated in the application that after his arrest in India, he was beaten and tortured during interrogation. After this, as soon as he got a chance, he reached Canada with the help of a fake passport in the name of Ravi Sharma. Nijjar's friend and Khalistan supporter Gurpreet Singh Pannu had told in an interview that initially Nijjar's application was rejected.
  • Exactly 11 days after this, Nijjar married a Canadian woman. After this, his wife applied for a visa for Nijjar. In this application, it was asked whether he had been a part of any political, religious or social organizations associated with armed conflict or violence?
  • His wife did not write in reply. However, this time too his application was rejected.
  • Nijjar approached the courts there to get Canadian citizenship, but in 2001 the court also rejected his appeal. However, the information about how Nijjar got citizenship later is not public.
