Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accuses New Delhi of triggering tension between the two countries.

The killing of a Sikh activist in British Colombia has opened up a diplomatic rift between India and Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says India may have been involved – a charge New Delhi is calling “absurd”.
