Sikh pioneer murder: One more Indian suspect captured in Canada

Sikh pioneer murder:

TORONTO: A fourth individual has been captured and accused of the homicide of Sikh dissenter pioneer Hardeep Singh Nijjar last year, Canadian police said on Saturday, for a situation that stressed conciliatory relations with India.

Canadian police recently captured and charged three Indian men in the city of Edmonton in Alberta and said they were testing whether the men had connections to the Indian government.

The Coordinated Crime Examination Group (IHIT) reported Saturday that Amandeep Singh, 22, has been accused of first-degree murder and connivance to perpetrate murder in Nijjar’s killing.

Singh, an Indian public who dwelled in Brampton, Surrey and Abbotsford, was at that point in authority for irrelevant guns charges out of Strip, Ontario, IHIT said.

Nijjar, 45, was shot dead in June outside a Sikh sanctuary in Surrey, a Vancouver suburb with an enormous Sikh populace. A couple of months after the fact, Canadian Top state leader Justin Trudeau refered to what he said was proof of potential Indian government inclusion, provoking a discretionary emergency with New Delhi.

Nijjar was a Canadian resident lobbying for the production of Khalistan, a free Sikh country cut out of India. The presence of Sikh rebel bunches in Canada has long disappointed New Delhi, which had named Nijjar a “psychological militant”.
