The killing of Khalistan leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar has soured relations between India and Canada. Trudeau named India in the Canadian Parliament and claimed that Indian officials had conspired to commit the Niger massacre. There was a lot of controversy on this issue and India summoned the Canadian ambassador and reprimanded him. After this, the visa service for India and Canada was also suspended for some time. Canada is currently engaged in gathering evidence to prove its allegations. On the other hand, India has already warned Canada that it is not appropriate to accuse it without concrete evidence.
