A senior Canadian government source revealed on Tuesday that Canada and the US collaborated “very closely” to investigate intel suggesting that Indian operatives may have been involved in the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia earlier this year.
The shooting of Nijjar, 45, in June, according to credible reports, was subject to a thorough investigation by domestic security agencies, according to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement on Monday.
According to the source, “We’ve been working with the US very closely, including on the public disclosure yesterday.”
The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity owing to the sensitivity of the issue, also stated that the evidence that Canada is in possession of would be provided “in due course,” Reuters reported.
On Tuesday, Trudeau told reporters that the case had important implications for international law.
