Former Sikh militant sorry for Canada PM Trudeau embarrassment in IndiaA former Sikh militant apologized Thursday for causing embarrassment to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his trip to India. Jaspal Atwal, who was part of a movement that supported an independent Sikh nation in the 1980s and went to prison for the attempted murder of a visiting Indian minister in 1986, was invited to a dinner with Trudeau in New Delhi causing consternation among his hosts. Trudeau’s visit to India had already been dogged by suspicions that Canada was soft on Sikh separatists.
