Canada police arrested another Indian in Khalistani Nijjar murder case; 4 people arrested so far

Canada: Canadian police said that Canadian authorities arrested a fourth suspect, an Indian national, in connection with the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on Saturday.

Amardeep Singh (22), a resident of Brampton, Surrey and Abbotsford, Canada, has been charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Amardeep Singh was arrested on May 11 for his role in the murder of Nijjar.

The official release said Amardeep was already in the custody of Peel Regional Police on a charge of possession of a firearm. IHIT officer in-charge Mandeep Mooker said,“This arrest shows the nature of our ongoing investigation to hold responsible those that played a role in the homicide of Hardeep Singh Nijjar.”

Amandeep Singh is now the fourth person arrestd in the case. Earlier, IHIT investigators had arrested three other Indians — Karan Brar (22), Kamalpreet Singh (22) and Karanpreet Singh (28), for the murder of Nijjar on May 3.

The three are Indian nationals living in Edmonton and have been charged with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Nijjar was killed in a targeted shooting in Canada’s Surrey outside a gurdwara. His name had been included in a list released by the Indian government with 40 other ‘designated terrorists’.

The killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in which Canada sees a role of India, has become a thorn in bilateral relations. India-Canada relations had deteriorated following Canada’s allegations of India’s role in Nijjar’s killing. Earlier, India had accused Trudeau and his party of playing vote bank politics by wooing Khalistanis.
