India-Canada Row: Canada has not yet presented evidence that India has been involved in the murder of Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. But still the Canadian intelligence community is trying to prove that Nijjar was innocent. They say that Nijjar was the religious head of the Guru Nanak Gurudwara in Surrey, Canada. However, the dossiers of Indian intelligence agencies reveal something else.
According to Hindustan Times report, Indian intelligence agencies claim in the dossier that Nijjar had threatened his own cousin Raghbir Singh Nijjar to become the Gurudwara chief. Raghbir Nijjar was the former gurudwara chief. Nijjar was also an old associate of Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) terrorist Gurdeep Singh alias Deepa Hirenwala. The dossier states that Gurdeep was involved in the murder of more than 200 people in Punjab in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Nijjar went to Pakistan in 2012
According to the dossier of Indian intelligence agencies, Nijjar fled to Canada in 1996 on the basis of a fake passport in the name ‘Ravi Sharma’. Here he worked as a truck driver and plumber. During this time, he came in contact with KTF Chief Jagtar Singh Tara present in Pakistan. Then he went to Pakistan in April 2012. Here Tara and Pakistani intelligence agency ISI brainwashed him. Weapons were supplied to him for terrorist attacks in 2012 and 2013.
Citizenship obtained even after red corner notice
It is even claimed in the dossier that in 2012, Tara sent Harjot Singh Biring, present in America, to Canada, so that he could teach Nijjar how to handle a GPS device. In 2015, Jagtar Singh Tara was deported from Thailand to India. After this Nijjar took over as the Operation Chief of KTF. A Red Corner Notice was also issued against Nijjar in November 2014. Even after this, the Canadian authorities gave him citizenship of their country.
Nijjar used to get people killed by paying them
After taking command of KTF in Canada, Nijjar started searching for the youth. He was also looking after the networking, training, funding and operation of the KTF module. Nijjar gave funds to a fundamentalist named Surjit Singh Kohli. Kohli further transferred this money to Babbar Khalsa International terrorist Parminder Singh alias Kala to buy weapons. Kala wanted to kill Sanjeev Ghanoli, a religious guru and Shiv Sena leader from Ropar.
