‘You must withdraw 41 diplomats’ — India tells Canada to reduce the number of diplomats in its country

India has demanded that Canada reduce its diplomatic staff in the country by 41 (out of 62) people by October 10.

This is another response to PM Trudeau’s allegation of a potential link between India and the murder of a Canadian-Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was killed in June.

India has also threatened to revoke diplomatic immunity for any diplomats who remain beyond that deadline. 

In addition to the reduction in diplomatic staff, India had previously imposed a visa ban on Canadians on the same issue.
