Another setback for Canada dreams; Canadian intelligence report describing India as foreign threat

canada-

OTTAWA: The estrangement in the long-standing relationship between India and Canada, following the killing of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, is worsening by the day. Now Canada has come up with a new accusation against India. Canada has described India as a 'foreign threat' that could interfere in the country's electoral process.

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service made the allegations in an intelligence report. The report named "Foreign Interference and Elections: A National Security Assessment" calls India a 'foreign threat' and warns that foreign interference is undermining Canada's democracy.

This is the first time Canada has accused India of meddling in elections. Earlier, Canada had accused China and Russia of interfering in the elections. Canada had criticized China as the biggest threat. Canadian reports say that India and China are a big threat. The Canadian Prime Minister has announced an investigation into the allegations.

It was on last June that Nijjar was killed in front of a Sikh Gurdwara in Vancouver, Canada. The crisis started on September 18 with a statement made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the Canadian Parliament. Trudeau alleged that the Indian government and Indian intelligence agencies were behind the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Trudeau repeatedly described Nijjar, who is on India's terror list, as a Canadian citizen. India dismissed Trudeau's accusation as absurd and clarified that it had no role in Nijjar's killing.
