India will wait for Canadian police to share information about the three Indians it arrested and charged with the murder of a Khalistan terrorist last year, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said on Saturday.

Canadian police charged the three men on Friday with the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar and said they were investigating whether the suspects had links to the Indian government.

Mr Jaishankar said he had seen news of the arrests and said the suspects “are apparently Indians from some sort of gang… we will have to wait until the police tell us”.

“But, as I said, one of our concerns that we have expressed to them is that, you know, they have allowed organized crime from India, particularly from Punjab, to operate in Canada.” , Mr. Jaishankar said.

Sanjay Verma, India’s high commissioner to Canada, said he hoped to receive regular updates from Canadian authorities regarding the three arrested Indians.

“I understand that the arrests were made following investigations by the relevant Canadian law enforcement agencies. This issue is internal to Canada and we therefore have no comment to make in this regard,” he said. added Mr. Verma.

The trio, all Indian nationals, were arrested Friday in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, police said.

Nijjar, 45, was shot dead in June outside a gurdwara in Surrey, a Vancouver suburb with a large Sikh population. A few months later, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged Indian government involvement, sparking a diplomatic crisis with New Delhi.
