India issues travel advisory for students, nationals in Canada


India has issued a new travel advisory encouraging Indian nationals and students to “exercise utmost caution” when travelling in Canada. “Given the deteriorating security environment in Canada, Indian students in particular are advised to exercise extreme caution and remain vigilant,” states the advisory. Students are also required to register with the High Commission of India, Consulates General of India, or MADAD portal in the event of any emergency. The travel advisory was issued shortly after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Parliament that there was reason to believe that “agents of the Indian government” were behind the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey, BC. India has reportedly called the allegations “absurd and motivated.”
