Khalistani terrorist: Hardeep Singh Nijjar

Khalistani terrorist: Hardeep Singh Nijjar, chief of the Khalistan Tiger Force and head of the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara Sahib, was shot dead in Canada’s Surrey on Sunday evening.

He was one of the most wanted Khalistani terrorist in India. Recently, Nijjar’s name was included in a list released by the Indian government, naming 40 other designated terrorists.

In 2022, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) declared a Rs 10 lakh reward on Nijjar after he was accused of conspiring to kill a Hindu priest in Punjab’s Jalandhar.

Earlier, the NIA had also filed a chargesheet against Nijjar in a case of conspiracy to commit terrorist acts against India.

During the investigation, it was discovered that Nijjar had made incriminating statements, posted objectionable content, and shared photos and videos on social media platforms to “spread insurrectionary imputations” through hateful speeches.

According to a document from the NIA, “The incriminating evidence thus gathered substantiates that he is involved in exhorting seditionary and insurrectionary imputations and also attempting to create disharmony among different communities in India.”

Hardeep Singh Nijjar was also facing charges in various cases registered and being investigated by the Punjab Police, leading to a red corner notice being issued against him.

According to a Punjab government order in 2020, a total of 11 kanal and 13.5 marlas of land belonging to Nijjar was seized in his native village, Bhar Singapura, in Phillaur subdivision of Jalandhar district. A villager mentioned that Hardeep’s family had migrated a long time ago, but his parents frequently visit the village and had last done so before the lockdown.
