WHILE the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has only said that three men and one vehicle – a silver 2008 Toyota Camry — were involved in the assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar on the night of Sunday, June 18 in a parking lot of Surrey’s Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara where he served as president, a Washington Post report claims that the operation comprised at least six men and two vehicles.
The paper says a 90-second recording of a video its staff reviewed shows a white sedan and Nijjar’s pickup truck driving side-by-side before the former pulls in front of the latter and brakes. As Nijjar’s vehicle stops, two men in hooded sweatshirts from a waiting area move toward Nijjar with firearms.
After the murder, the white sedan drives off and the two armed men run in the same direction.
The Washington Post reports that investigators told community members that 34 bullets hit Nijjar.
The paper reports that a gurdwara committee member saw the two gunmen running toward Cougar Creek Park and gave chase. The gunmen then ran to a cul-de-sac and got into a silver car in which there were three other men.
The committee member said that one of the men was just over five feet tall and heavy-set, while the other was about four inches taller and leaner. But he didn’t see their faces.
The paper also reported that the spokesman of the B.C. Sikh Gurdwara Council told them that Nijjar’s mechanic recently found a tracker in the wheel well of his truck.
Police do not reveal ALL the facts in their possession because of investigative and legal reasons. They obviously do not want to let suspects know exactly what all they are aware of. Nor do they want to reveal their sources or methods and so on.
So we will just have to wait and see where this investigation goes.
