Who is Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the Sikh leader Indian agents allegedly killed?
As the House of Commons reconvened on Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau informed Parliament that there were credible allegations of a potential link between agents of the government of India and the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Canadian citizen and Sikh leader.
As a consequence, an Indian diplomat was expelled from Canada.
The man at the centre of the diplomatic storm was gunned down in June this year, and the investigation remains open into his murder. On June 18, Nijjar, 45, was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds inside a vehicle outside theGuru Nanak Sikh Gurdwarajust before 8:30 p.m. on June 18.
The RCMPs Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) initially sought two suspects described as heavier-set males wearing face coverings. However, they later said the men were not acting alone.
On Monday, Trudeau confirmed that authorities were investigating links between the murder and people linked to the Indian government.
