The Indian intelligence agencies have alerted Canada’s Justin Trudeau government, saying that pro-Khalistan terrorists are running a camp near Mission city in British Columbia to carry out strikes in Punjab.
According to TOI, Canadian Sikh Hardeep Nijjar has taken over as the operational head of Khalistan Terror Force (KTF) and formed a module comprising Sikh youths to carry out the attacks.
Nijjar is a proclaimed terrorist in Punjab. The Punjab government has already submitted the report to the ministry of external affairs and ministry of home affairs to seek Nijjar’s extradition.
The report mentions “Nijjar has been imparting arms training to his group in Canada after the arrest of former KTF chief Jagtar Tara in Thailand by the Interpol last year. He took Mandeep Singh and three more Sikh youths recently for AK-47 training in a range near Mission where they were made to fire for four hours daily.”
These reports have not emerged for the first time. Earlier, in April, Hindustan Times reported that the Indian government has intelligence inputs which indicate that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency is using Sikh extremists in Canada for pro-Khalistan and anti-India activities.
