As reported AFPOn Friday (7/15/2022), Ripudaman Singh Malik, a supporter of the Sikh separatist movement, Khalistan, was acquitted of the Air India airline bombing that killed 329 passengers and crew in 1985.
In 2005, Malik was acquitted of mass murder charges due to lack of evidence at the time.
Malik was reportedly shot and killed outside his clothing business in the Vancouver, BC area on Thursday (7/14) local time.
Canadian police said in a statement that a man was found “with gunshot wounds” and that he “died at the scene of his injuries”. However, the identity of the man in question was not further clarified.
“This appears to be a targeted shooting,” local police official Sarbjit Sangha said in a statement.
The Sangha added that a vehicle believed to have been driven by the shooter was found in an area a few miles from the scene, in a “completely engulfed in flames” condition.
