Gangster-turned-terrorist Sukhdool Singh alias Sukha Duneke was allegedly bumped off by unidentified gunmen in Canada on Wednesday, intelligence sources said citing inputs coming in from Canada on Thursday morning.
An official confirmation from the local law enforcement is awaited on the murder.
This would be yet another gang-related killing on Canadian soil, sources said adding that rivalry between Khalistani extremists had been fueling these murders, according to Times of India reports.
Reports suggest that Duneke was shot dead by his rivals in Winnipeg area.
Duneke, who belonged to Moga in Punjab, was a close associate of designated terrorist Arsh Dalla of the Khalistan Tiger Force. The duo had been trying to resurrect the outfit after the killing of terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar by rivals in June this year.
Earlier, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, was shot dead outside a Sikh temple on June 18 in Surrey, a Vancouver suburb with a large Sikh population. Nijjar supported a Sikh homeland in the form of an independent Khalistani state and was designated by India as a “terrorist” in July 2020.
