The two men who, authorities suspect, fatally shot Hardeep Nijjar in British Columbia, are being watched by police. They are anticipated to be arrested in the next few weeks, The Globe and Mail reported citing sources. The Globe and Mail is a Canadian newspaper printed in 5 cities in western and central Canada.

The Canadian media report said three sources had told the media publication that the suspected killers did not leave Canada after Nijjar was shot dead in Surrey. They had been under police surveillance for months. Nijjar was shot dead outside a gurdwara in Canada’s Surrey on June 18.

The ties between India and Canada have been strained after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged Indian involvement in the murder of Hardeep Nijjar on Canadian soil earlier this year.

According to sources, when the charges are laid against the two men, police will reveal their role as well as that of the Indian government. The Globe is not naming the sources because they are not authorized to speak publicly about national security or police concerns.

According to security agencies, Nijjar was actively involved in recruiting and training people for the banned terrorist outfit, KTF. He was also a part of the separatist outfit Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), which held a Khalistan referendum on September 10.
