Hardeep Singh Nijjar killing: India expels senior Canadian diplomat, asks to leave country within 5 days | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: India on Tuesday expelled the senior Canadian diplomat, in response to Canada’s expulsion of a senior Indian diplomat Pavan Kumar Rai.
This move follows India’s rejection of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s accusation that India played a role in the June killing of a Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, which India deemed as ‘absurd and motivated.’
“The High Commissioner of Canada to India was summoned today and informed about the decision of the Government of India to expel a senior Canadian diplomat based in India. The concerned diplomat has been asked to leave India within the next five days. The decision reflects the Government of India’s growing concern at the interference of Canadian diplomats in our internal matters and their involvement in anti-India activities,” MEA said in a statement.
