India’s tit for tat: Expels a senior Canadian diplomat

FOLLOWING Canada’s expulsion of a “top Indian diplomat,” Pavan Kumar Rai, who was head of India’s foreign intelligence agency, “Research and Analysis Wing” or RAW, in Canada in connection to the assassination of Surrey’s Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara President Hardeep Singh Nijjar last June, India retaliated on Tuesday by expelling “a senior Canadian diplomat.”

India’s External Affairs Ministry announced in a press statement: “The High Commissioner of Canada to India was summoned today and informed about the decision of the Government of Canada to expel a senior Canadian diplomat based in India. The concerned diplomat has been asked to leave India within the next five days.”

It added: “The decision reflects Government of India’s growing concern at the interference of Canadian diplomats in our internal matters and their involvement in anti-India activities.”
