Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s workplace strongly denied the declare that his plane was “full of cocaine” when he got here to India for the G20 meet this month.

“This (is) absolutely false and a troubling example of how disinformation can make its way into media reporting,” his workplace mentioned in a press release on Wednesday because it dismissed the unsubstantiated declare floated by a retired Indian diplomat throughout a TV dialogue, in accordance to the Toronto Star.

Former Indian ambassador to Sudan Deepak Vohra mentioned on Monday there have been “credible rumours” that  “sniffer dogs found cocaine on his plane” and that Mr Trudeau “didn’t come out of his room for two days”.

“He didn’t go to the president’s dinner. People say he was in a drug-induced stupor,” Mr Vohra claimed whereas showing on Zee News as a panelist on a present hosted by anchor Deepak Chaurasia.

The present started because the anchor tried to unpack “how the brain of the Canadian prime minister worked”.

“Does he have a brain? He is a tiny infant,” responded Mr Vohra, including that when his spouse noticed Mr Trudeau at Delhi airport, he appeared “troubled”.

“…Can’t say what’s going on in his head but I understand his behaviour shows he has freaked out,” he mentioned, with no cross questioning from the anchor.

“He has become lonely. He is now trying to show that he is a Canadian Rambo and nothing can go wrong in his presence. India has done the right thing by suspending visa services in Canada,” he mentioned.

The feedback got here as diplomatic relationship between India and Canada noticed a stoop over the killing of Sikh separatist chief Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The disaster between New Delhi and Ottawa unfolded final week after prime minister Justin Trudeau accused the Indian state of involvement in the killing of the Canadian nationwide.

Nijjar was murdered in Vancouver on 18 June by two masked males, who fired an estimated 30 to 50 pictures at him.

Canada reportedly has human and indicators intelligence backing up their principle of the assassination, together with communications involving Indian officers in Canada, CBC reported.

“I can assure you that the decision to share these allegations on the floor of the House of Commons … was not done lightly,” Mr Trudeau informed parliament final week. “It was done with the utmost seriousness.”

The allegations have sparked a bitter row between the 2 international locations.

Ottawa expelled a senior diplomat working for Indian intelligence, whereas India – which labelled Nijjar a “terrorist” in 2020 – angrily rejected the allegation as “absurd”, expelled the chief of Canadian intelligence in India, issued journey warnings, stopped visa issuance to Canadians, and downsized Canada’s diplomatic presence in India.
