A year has passed since the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Sikh separatist leader, which has led to increased scrutiny and tension between Canada and India. Nijjar was killed outside a community shrine near Vancouver, and the incident has sparked a series of diplomatic and legal measures.  

  In Canada, a court hearing is set to take place on 25 June offering prosecutors a chance to present evidence of India’s alleged involvement in the murder. 

  Sikh activists have marked the anniversary of Nijjar’s death by holding a mock trial of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi outside the Indian consulate in downtown Vancouver, asserting the Indian government’s role in Nijjar’s death. 

  The Canadian Parliament also honored Nijjar with a moment of silence, which led to an angry response from India. 

  The case has strained India-Canada ties, with allegations of India’s potential link to the murder being actively pursued by Canadian authorities. Diplomatic relations have been affected, and the situation remains a sensitive topic for both nations.
