‘Give concrete evidence’, Indian diplomat told Canada amid Hardeep Nijjar murder controversy

Amidst the ongoing diplomatic deadlock between India and Canada, High Commissioner Sanjay Kumar Verma has said something which has become the center of discussion. India’s stand has come to light amidst the ongoing diplomatic standoff with India after the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Nijjar in Canada. India’s High Commissioner to Canada Sanjay Kumar Verma has reiterated New Delhi’s stand on the diplomatic standoff. He has asked Ottawa to provide concrete evidence in the case of the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. The High Commissioner of India has sought concrete evidence related to the murder charges. The Indian Ambassador made the above comments in an interview with Canadian platform, The Globe and Mail on Friday.

In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Verma reiterated that neither Canada nor its allies have presented concrete evidence linking Nijjar to his murder. He said that in this case no specific or relevant information has been provided to us to assist in the investigation. If you remember, on September 18, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the House of Commons that there were possible links between the killing of Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia on June 18 and Indian agents. This statement of his was condemned by India. This statement by the Indian diplomat comes after Trudeau alleged the involvement of ‘agents of the Indian government’ in the murder of Nijjar in June. However, India has already rejected these allegations as absurd and motivated.

A Canadian diplomat was expelled by India

Canada’s decision was retaliated by India and a Canadian diplomat was expelled. Indian diplomat to Canada Sanjay Verma stressed that Canada or its allies have not provided concrete evidence to India regarding India’s alleged involvement in Nijjar’s murder. The Indian diplomat suggested that the ongoing Canadian police investigation into Nijjar’s murder was harmed by PM Trudeau’s public statements. He further said that in this case we need concrete evidence to help in the investigation.

Where is the evidence? Where is the conclusion of the investigation?

Indian diplomat Sanjay Kumar said where is the evidence? Where is the conclusion of the investigation? He said that I would like to say that the investigation has already been tainted. During the interview, he asked whether instructions had come from anyone at a high level to say that India or Indian agents were behind this. Verma also focused on the fact that India made 26 requests to Ottawa in the last five or six years to extradite people from Canada to India, but said New Delhi was waiting for any action. Sanjay Kumar said during the conversation that I am worried about my safety. God forbid if something happens.
