According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), there is still a “active and ongoing investigation” into the murder of Khalistani rebel Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

On June 18, in Surrey, British Columbia, Nijjar, the leader of the outlawed Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF), was assassinated. Nijjar was a terrorist who India had labeled in 2020.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) of the RCMP is looking into the death of 45-year-old Nijjar.

“We are aware of the reports being made regarding the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. I’m unable to comment on particular information that IHIT has gathered because this is still an active and ongoing investigation, IHIT spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Pierotti told PTI on Thursday.

In the meantime, the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara Sahib in Surrey, British Columbia, the scene of Nijjar’s murder, has opened an inquiry into how The Washington Post newspaper was able to examine security camera footage of the June incident.

“The temple informed us that the footage was not intended for the public or the media since there was an ongoing inquiry. There won’t be a public release of the footage. A representative for the gurdwara, Gurkeerat Singh, told The Canadian Press that the probe was still ongoing.

Singh, though, claimed to have watched the video several times.

It wasn’t a random act of behavior. These individuals have been observing Hardeep Singh’s movements for some time, and they are familiar with his route out of the gurdwara and his exit method, he claimed.

Police have conducted a “fulsome canvass of the area,” in accordance with the evidence, and are gathering all pertinent video evidence, according to Pierotti, who spoke to the local weekly newspaper Surrey Now-Leader.

Balraj Nijjar, Nijjar’s son, revealed to a local newspaper that his father often met with Canadian Security Intelligence Service agents “once or twice a week,” including just a few days before the murder on June 18 and with a follow-up meeting planned for two days later.

The murder of Nijjar on June 18 is allegedly being covered up by the Indian government, according to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The claims have been deemed “absurd” and “motivated” by India.

Separately, a guy was detained for vandalizing two sizable Hindu temples in Surrey, according to a report published in the Vancouver Sun newspaper on Thursday.

“The suspect and his helpers are accused of hanging yellow-red posters all over the Hindu temples.

The banners demand a separate Sikh country in India and claim that Indian diplomats in Canada are “wanted” for the “assassination” of Khalistani activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on June 18, according to the daily.
