Ahead of calls of protest by the Khalistani group Sikhs For Justice, Indian Missions were surrounded with barricades and police personnel were deployed to monitor the situation.
Indian Missions in Canada’s Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver were surrounded with barricades after protest calls by Khalistani group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ). The extremist outfit has called for protests outside Indian diplomatic missions in main Canadian cities.
In addition to this, local police and federal police personnel were also deployed to monitor the situation.
The Khalistani group called on its members for a protest a week after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged New Delhi’s “potential link” to the murder of a Khalistani terrorist, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in British Columbia.
Trudeau said last week Canada was pursuing “credible allegations” that agents of the Indian government could be involved in the killing of a Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s killing in Surrey on June 18. Subsequently, the Canadian foreign minister expelled the head of Indian intelligence in Canada, Pavan Kumar Rai.
