Canada Regrets Denying Entry to Retired Indian Policeman at Vancouver Airport

New Delhi: Canadian authorities denied entry to former Inspector General of Police Tejinder Singh Dhillon at the Vancouver airport as he had worked with the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), which is reported to have committed human rights abuses in India.
“We regret any inconvenience that may have been experienced by this individual and their family. Canada’s privacy law prevents me from commenting further,” Canadian High Commissioner Nadir Patel said in a statement.
The statement from the Canadian High Commissioner further reads that, “Canada values our relationship with India, based on shared values of democracy, pluralism, human rights and rule of law.”
Earlier, India had raised the issue with the Canadian government.
