NEW DELHI: Canadian authorities apprehended Amardeep Singh, a 22-year-old resident of Brampton, Surrey, and Abbotsford areas in Canada on May 11, marking the fourth arrest of an Indian national in connection with the murder of separatist Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
Singh, who was already in custody of the Peel Regional Police for separate firearms charges, has been charged with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder, as stated in an official release.
Superintendent Mandeep Mooker, the Officer in Charge of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), emphasized the significance of this arrest, saying, “This arrest shows the nature of our ongoing investigation to hold responsible those that played a role in the homicide of Hardeep Singh Nijjar.”
The incident occurred on June 18, 2023, when Nijjar, aged 45, was killed outside Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey, British Columbia.
Prior to Singh’s arrest, IHIT investigators had taken three other Indian nationals into custody on May 3 for their alleged involvement in Nijjar’s murder. Karan Brar (22), Kamalpreet Singh (22), and Karanpreet Singh (28), all residing in Edmonton, were charged with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
