Despite Canadian PM Justin Trudeau failing to provide any evidence to back his allegations on India’s involvement in the death of Khalistani operative Hardeep Nijjar, Canada based news platform CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) claims that Canada has amassed human and signal intelligence in the probe.
CBC claimed citing sources that the intelligence gathered by the Canadian government includes conversations with Indian diplomats in the country.
It has further claimed that some Indian officials have “not denied” the existence of the intelligence in private.
This comes after Canada PM Justin Trudeau alleged India’s role behind the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. New Delhi has out-rightly denied such allegations calling them ‘absurd’ and ‘motivated’.
In his news conference in New York on Thursday the Canadian Prime Minister however failed to present any evidence to back Canadian claims. Trudeau was repeatedly quizzed on the nature of the allegations but stuck to reiterating that there were “credible reasons” to believe that India was linked to the death of Nijjar.
“There are credible reasons to believe that agents of the Government of India were involved in the killing of a Canadian on Canadian soil. That is …there is something of utmost foundational importance in a country’s rule of law in a world where international rules-based order matters” said Trudeau.
“We call upon the Government of India to take seriously this matter and to work with us to shed full transparency and ensure accountability and justice in this matter” added Trudeau.
