Canada-based Sikh leader and businessman Ripudaman Singh Malik, who was acquitted in the 1985 Air India bombing, has been shot dead in Surrey, B.C, his family said.
As per the report published in Global News, the RCMP received a call informing them of gunfire in Surrey B.C. on Thursday at around 9.30 am.
Upon reaching the spot the police found a man suffering from several gunshot wounds.
The wounded man was provided first-aid by the officers and then Emergency Health Services took over, as per a news release by Const. Sarbjit Sangha, which Global News cited.
“The injured man succumbed to his injuries on scene,” the release further said.
Meanwhile, Malik had earlier been in the spotlight in January 2022 when he had written a letter praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and thanking him for his ‘services to the Sikh community’, especially for the opening of the Kartarpur corridor, assuring justice was served in cases related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, and more.
In January, BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa had shared the letter written by Malik on his Twitter handle and had thanked him for having ‘dared to voice Sikh sentiments’.
