Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has reportedly briefed world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and French President Emmanuel Macron, about alleged Indian involvement in the killing of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Najar, who was associated with the pro-Khalistan movement.

Sources suggest that Trudeau informed these world leaders that Canadian national security agencies have evidence linking Indian agents to the murder of Hardeep Singh Nagar.

Additionally, Canada has contacted the United Nations regarding this matter, with Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Jolie briefing her G7 counterpart at the United Nations about India’s alleged involvement in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nagar. The United States and Australia expressed “deep concern” over Canada’s accusations, while Britain said it was in close touch with its Canadian partners about the “serious allegations”.

India has been particularly sensitive to Sikh protesters in Canada with some Indian analysts saying Ottawa does not stop them as Sikhs are a politically influential group there.

In June, India criticised Canada for permitting a float in a parade depicting the 1984 assassination of late prime minister Indira Gandhi by her bodyguards, perceived to be glorification of violence by Sikh separatists.

Ottawa paused talks this month on a proposed trade treaty with India, just three months after both said they aimed to seal an initial deal this year.

Modi did not hold a two-way meeting with Trudeau at the G20 summit, despite similar meetings with other world leaders. Days earlier, metro stations in the Indian capital were vandalised with pro-Khalistan graffiti.
