After Canada on Monday expelled a top Indian diplomat as it investigated the potential link between the Indian government and the killing of a Khalistani terrorist, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs strongly rejected the allegations, claiming that they are 'absurd' and 'motivated'. India decided to expel a senior Canadian diplomat in retaliation and asked him to leave India in the next five days.

"We have seen and reject the statement of the Canadian Prime Minister in their Parliament, as also the statement by their Foreign Minister. Allegations of Government of India's involvement in any act of violence in Canada are absurd and motivated...We are a democratic polity with a strong commitment to rule of law," a statement issued by the MEA said after the head of Indian intelligence in Canada was expelled.
