The United States provided Canada with intelligence on the killing of Khalistani terrorists Hardeep Singh Nijjar on Canadian soil, but Justin Trudeau’s government trusted it’s own intercepted communication that led to accusing India of it’s involvement in the killing of Khalistani terrorist.
The New York Times report cited top US Diplomat in Canda who confirmed that there was ‘shared intelligence among Five Eyes Partners’ – which prompted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to accuse India of killing Nijjar’s killing.

However, NY confirmed that allied officials of the Five Eyes said that they did not learn about the plot or any evidence pointing to India’s involvement in the case until Nijjar was killed.
Meanwhile, United States has called on India to cooperate with the Canadian government in it’s investigations into the killing of Nijjar – chief of Khalistan Tiger Force.
Notably, Nijjar was shot dead by two unidentified men in Surrey on June 18. India had designated Nijjar as a terrorist in 2020.
