RCMP investigation into June 23, 1985 bombing of Air India Flight 182 remains open

The passing of almost 38 years since the horrendous mass murder of 329 people in the bombing of Air India Flight 182 on June 23, 1985, off the coast of Ireland has not lessened the determination of the RCMP to bring to justice those responsible for the devilish deed.

Also, the Narita airport explosion in the luggage meant for another Air India plane in Japan on the same day killed two baggage handlers.

Dawn Roberts, Director in charge of BC RCMP Communications, told The VOICE on Thursday: “The investigation into the bombing of Air India Flight 182 remains open for the RCMP. There were 329 people that were killed as a result of the horrific criminal act, as well as two people in Japan, and police have an unwavering commitment to finding answers for their families and holding those responsible accountable.”

She added: “The RCMP remains committed to investigating any evidence that is brought forward, no matter how small it may seem … We are encouraging anyone with information that may pertain to the bombing to contact Sgt. Eric Boucher with the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) at 778-290-3700, or the National Security line at 1-800-420-5805.”

Roberts said: “As in previous years RCMP personnel will be attending the Air India memorials taking place in Vancouver and Toronto.”
