Khalistan supporters surrounded Indian ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu in American Gurudwara, said- You killed Nijjar, conspired to kill Pannun

The Indian ambassador to the United States, Taranjit Singh Sandhu, was cornered at a Gurdwara in New York by Khalistan supporters who almost pushed the envoy, saying “You killed Nijjar”, “You conspired to kill Pannun”. The incident took place at the Hicksville Gurdwara in New York where a man could be heard shouting at the Indian ambassador accusing him of killing Khalistani supporter Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The video of the incident, shared by BJP spokesperson RP Singh Khalsa, showed the Indian envoy surrounded by people at the gurudwara amid continuous shouting and screaming. The people around him push away those who confront him.

“Khalistanis tried to corner Indian Ambassador @SandhuTaranjit with baseless questions over his role in the failed conspiracy to assassinate Gurpatwant (SFJ) and the Khalistan referendum campaign,” the BJP spokesperson said on Twitter.

“Himmat Singh, who led Khalistan supporters at New York’s Hicksville Gurdwara, also accused Ambassador Sandhu of India’s role in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was president of the Surrey Gurdwara and coordinator of the Canadian chapter of Khalistan Referendum. @ JoeBiden @PMOIndia @MEAIndia,” he further said.

Last month, Indian High Commissioner to Britain Vikram Doriyaswami was denied permission to enter a gurdwara in Scotland by a group of radical Sikh activists. The incident occurred when the Indian envoy visited the gurudwara on invitation. British Sikh activists reportedly told Doriaswami that he was ‘not welcome’.

Notably, Nijjar’s assassination had created tensions between India and Canada as Nijjar accused the Indian side of being involved in the killing of the Sikh extremist leader. This led to the expulsion of diplomats from both sides.
