FBI Warned Indian American Sikhs About Death Threats After Killing In Canada
WASHINGTON, DC (IANS) – After Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead outside a Gurdwara in British Columbia, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents visited several Sikh leaders and warned them that their lives were also at risk, as per a report in The Intercept.
Pritpal Singh, a political activist who is a coordinator for the American Sikh Caucus Committee, told The Intercept that he and two other Sikh Americans in California received calls and visits from the FBI after Nijjar was killed.
Sukhman Dhami, co-director of Ensaaf, a California-based nonprofit group said Sikhs throughout the US have received police warnings about potential threats.
India and Canada are enmeshed in a diplomatic row over Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegation of involvement of Indian intelligence and the state in the killing of Canadian citizens and Sikh separatist Nijjar. Nijjar was declared a designated terrorist by India in 2020.
