Spokesman Randhir Jaiswal said no specific or relevant evidence or information has been shared by Canadian authorities to date.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said no specific or relevant evidence or information has been shared by Canadian authorities to date. So you will understand our view that the matter is already being assessed. Obviously, political interests are at work in this. He also expressed concern over this and alleged that Canada is giving political space to separatists, extremists and those advocating violence.

He claimed that Indian diplomats in Canada were threatened with impunity and prevented from performing their duties. We have also informed Canadian authorities that individuals with links to organized crime based in India have been granted entry and residence permission in Canada. We have several extradition requests pending. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson said, we are discussing all these matters at the diplomatic level. This is not the first time that India has alleged that extremists are being given political space in Canada. Last week, India rejected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s latest comments on the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, saying these comments once again reflect the political space given to separatism, extremism and violence in Canada.
