Mumbai: US Ambassador to Canada David Cohen confirmed that “shared intelligence among Five Eyes partners” had informed Canadian PM Justin Trudeau of the possible involvement of Indian agents in Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s killing, CTV News reported.
According to David Cohen, the US ambassador to Canada, there was “shared intelligence among Five Eyes partners” that informed Trudeau’s public allegation of a “potential” connection between the government of India and the murder of a Canadian citizen. CTV News Channel is Canada’s 24-hour all-news network.
An intelligence coalition known as the “Five Eyes” is made up of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. It is based on both signals intelligence (SIGINT) and surveillance.
On September 18, Trudeau made a shocking claim about the “potential” involvement of Indian operatives in the June 18 murder of Canadian citizen and Khalistani fanatic Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia.
India has rejected Trudeau’s allegations as “absurd” and “motivated.” It also expelled a senior Canadian diplomat in a tit-for-tat move to Ottawa’s expulsion of an Indian official over the case.
