New Delhi. India has taken a tough stance on Canadian PM Justin Trudeau blaming the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar and expelling its diplomat. The Ministry of External Affairs today summoned Canada’s High Commissioner and told him that it has decided to expel a senior diplomat of his country. This senior Canadian diplomat has been asked to leave India in 5 days. The Ministry of External Affairs has alleged in its statement that Canadian diplomats are continuously interfering in the internal affairs of India and taking part in anti-India activities while staying in Delhi.

Before issuing the order to expel the Canadian diplomat, the Foreign Ministry summoned the High Commissioner Cameron McKay to the office in South Block. The Ministry of External Affairs raised the issue of Canada not taking action against Khalistani terrorists and anti-India elements and expressed its protest. While leaving the Ministry of External Affairs after being summoned, the Canadian High Commissioner did not answer the questions of the media and in an expression of displeasure, he quickly closed the door of his car.

Earlier on Monday, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau had accused Indian agencies of killing terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Justice Trudeau did not even present any evidence while giving his statement in Parliament. Trudeau had said that the killing of a citizen in Canada is an injury to sovereignty. He had also described the activities of Khalistani terrorists as freedom of expression. PM Narendra Modi had clearly told Trudeau in Delhi that Canada should take action against anti-India elements. At that time there was no statement in this regard from Trudeau or Canada. Days after returning to Canada, Trudeau has now accused India of killing Nijjar.
