Six years prior to being labeled a “terrorist”, Nijjar had an Interpol Red Corner Notice issued against him in 2014. Indian agencies informed the Canadian government that he was wanted for over a dozen criminal cases, including murder and terrorist activities in India. Despite this, Canada took no action against him, only placing him on a “no-fly list”, according to sources in central intelligence agencies.

Nijjar, who was killed in a diplomatic incident between India and Ottawa, had entered Canada using a fake passport.

According to intelligence reports, Nijjar had ties to KCF militants in the 1980s and 1990s, and had been closely linked to KTF chief Jagtar Singh Tara since 2012. After fleeing to Canada with a forged passport in 1996 due to terrorism allegations, he worked as a truck driver and later connected with Tara, based in Pakistan.

In 2012, Nijjar traveled to Pakistan under the guise of a Baisakhi jatha member and received weapons and explosives training for two weeks. Upon returning to Canada, he raised funds for terror activities through associates involved in drug and arms smuggling.

Upon arriving in Canada, Nijjar collaborated with Tara to plan a terror attack in India, forming a group in Canada that received arms training in British Columbia. In 2014, Nijjar attempted to carry out an attack on Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters in Haryana’s Sirsa but was unable to enter India due to a visa denial.
