The National Investigation Agency of India had designated Nijjar as a terrorist in 2020.

India had called Canada’s allegations baseless. Following this accusation, New Delhi asked Canada to send back 41 of its 62 diplomats in the country, accusing them of interference in India’s internal affairs and citing diplomatic parity. Tensions remain but have since eased somewhat.

India maintains that Canada has never provided concrete evidence of Nijjar’s murder.
