Trudeau was getting call records of Indian officials based on suspicion


The tension in relations between canada and india seems to be reaching its peak. First the diplomats of both

the countries were suspended and now New delhi has indefinitely suspended visa services for Canadian

citizens. The controversy started with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, when he accused india of killing

Khalistan supporter Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Even now the Canadian PM is repeating his point. However, India

has already rejected them as absurd.

However, Canada's belief that indian agents were involved in the killing of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh

Nijjar may be based on call records of conversations with indian officials. CBC news said in a report on

Thursday that indian officials, including indian diplomats present in canada, were kept on surveillance,

during which what they talked about on the call was heard. The Canadian government gathered intelligence

during a month-long investigation.

Intelligence advisor visited india twice

According to the report, some intelligence information was shared with other countries in the Five Eyes

alliance. In addition to canada, that group includes the United States, the United Kingdom, new zealand and

Australia. The report also notes that Canada's National Security and Intelligence Advisor Jody Thomas visited

india for four days in august and five days in September, his second visit to canada for the G20 Leaders

Summit. Coincided with Trudeau's visit to New Delhi.
