The Indian government has consistently and categorically refuted “baseless” and “motivated” accusations linking it to the demise of Mr. Nijjar. It has urged Ottawa to provide supporting evidence for its assertions.
According to sources, electronic visa services for Canadian citizens have been reinstated by India after a pause of nearly two months. The suspension of visa services, which began on September 21, was a result of the ongoing diplomatic dispute over Canada’s allegations of the involvement of “agents of the Indian government” in the June killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Canadian citizen, in India.
This resumption implies the reinstatement of all visa services, including tourist visas. Last month, services for four categories, including business and medical visas, had already resumed.
In September, India had temporarily halted the issuance of visas to Canadian citizens, stating that it would remain in effect until further notice.
