India is ramping up legal efforts against wanted Sikhs in Canada

 By Allan Woods Staff Reporter

India isn’t backing down on efforts to pressure, track and capture Sikh separatists in Canada in the face of a high-stakes diplomatic showdown between the governments of prime ministers Justin Trudeau and Narendra Modi.

After Canada’s assertion that there were “credible allegations” that the Indian state may have ordered the June killing of Surrey, B.C.’s Hardeep Singh Nijjar, an outspoken advocate of Sikh independence, law enforcement in India is instead ramping up the fight against individuals it considers to be terrorists, gangsters and fugitives from justice in this country.

The release of the Indian charge sheet, which was filed in March, helps to amplify the Indian government’s long-standing complaint about Canada: that Canadian politicians and police have turned a blind eye to the activities of Sikhs who have sought refuge abroad but continue to sow chaos in India through their words and actions.

A copy of the document, first obtained by the Hindustan Times and shared with the Toronto Star, alleges that pro-Khalistan militants abroad used the services of a gang’s roster of shooters “to carry out assassinations and attacks on security establishments” in India.
