While people were wondering if the investigation into Hardeep Singh Nijjar's murder had settled, the Canadian authorities recently arrested three Indian-Origin men as suspects in the case. Canadian Police on Friday arrested three Indians on suspicion of they were part of the alleged hit squad that had killed Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in 2023.

4. He said coordination with India has been "challenging and rather difficult for the last several years".

5. Mooker said that his investigation has relied on the Sikh community's support. "We would not be at this point without the bravery and courage of the Sikh community coming forward with information for this investigation," he said, adding that he believes they will continue to come forward for any future investigations.

Citing sources, a report in Global News said that the suspects had entered Canada on "student visas but may have been working at the direction of Indian intelligence when they shot Nijjar." According to court records, Brar has been charged with a murder that occurred in Surrey on June 18, 2023. He also faces a charge of conspiracy to murder on May 1, 2023, in Edmonton and Surrey.

"There are separate and distinct investigations ongoing into these matters, certainly not limited to the involvement of the people arrested today, and these efforts include investigating connections to the government of India," said David.
