Indian intelligence agencies alerted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of a possible Khalistan Terror Force (KTF) camp being operated near Mission City in British Columbia to carry out attacks in Punjab.Canadian Sikh Hardeep Nijjar is now head of KFT; he is wanted in India for the 2007 Shingaar cinema blast in Ludhiana which killed six people. In fact, India has already initiated action via the ministry of external affairs to extradite him.

Nijjar is a baptized Sikh who has been staying in Surrey since 1995 on a Canadian passport (QK139247).  The report says Nijjar is training his group in Canada to use weapons following the arrest of former KTF chief Jagtar Tara in Thailand—he was seized by the International policein 2015. “He took Mandeep Singh and three more Sikh youths recently for AK-47 training in a range near Mission where they were made to fire for four hours daily,” the report states. It adds that Nijjar and Mandeep have visited Pakistan often for arms training under Pakistan government aided Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).

According to India, the KTF is planning to carry out attacks against the police, Shiv Sena leaders and Punjab’s dera chiefs. Nijjar and Mandeep reportedly visited India in January 2016, when they did a recce of Patiala and Ludhiana.
