FOREIGN Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson on Tuesday said in a statement: “Canada strongly condemns yesterday’s attack on a police station in Gurdaspur, a district in the northern Indian state of Punjab, which killed at least six people and injured several others.

“Such violent extremism is despicable and is a stark reminder of the grave threat that terrorism poses to the people of India and the region. We expect that the perpetrators of this horrendous attack will be brought to justice.

“On behalf of all Canadians, I offer my sincere condolences to the families and friends of those killed and wish a speedy recovery to the injured.”
