The Mysterious Killing of Sukha Duneke in Canada
Gangster Sukhdool Singh, who had fled to Canada from Punjab in 2017, was brutally shot by unknown assailants in Canada’s Winnipeg. This incident has sent shockwaves through the Indian and Canadian communities, raising questions about the motives and players involved.
Joining Pro-Khalistan Forces
According to sources in Punjab Police, Sukhdool Singh had become affiliated with pro-Khalistan forces. His journey from Punjab’s Moga to Canada’s Winnipeg ended in a tragic inter-gang rivalry, leaving him lifeless. It is suspected that gangster Lawrence Bishnoi claimed responsibility for this gruesome act.
The Alias: Sukha Duneke
Sukhdool Singh, alias Sukha Duneke, had entered Canada in 2017 using a forged passport. His criminal activities were not limited to one area; he had been aiding, funding, and strengthening the notorious Devinder Bambiha gang across Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Rajasthan. His connections with pro-Khalistan outfits were no secret, but his main activities revolved around extortions and ‘supari’ killings, as per sources.
Inter-Gang Rivalry Takes a Life
Top intelligence sources reveal that the recent spate of killings in Canada is rooted in inter-gang rivalry. These groups are vying for control over the Khalistani movement, driven by monetary interests. It is believed that Punnun and others are attempting to dominate the immigration business by eliminating competition. Local gangsters are often hired to carry out these hits when their usefulness to the gang is exhausted.
The Anti-India Propaganda
While some claim these killings are motivated by the desire to control immigration businesses, others argue that it’s part of a broader anti-India propaganda campaign. Khalistani groups manipulate the emotions and vulnerabilities of the youth, spreading false narratives. Duneke was at the center of orchestrating crimes in Punjab and neighboring states, earning him a spot on the most-wanted list for numerous heinous crimes.
Pakistan’s Role in Canada
Intelligence reports suggest that Pakistan’s ISI plays a significant role in funding activities in Canada. Khalistani leaders in Canada, particularly from the Khalistani Liberal Party and New Democratic Party (NDP), allegedly receive regular funding from ISI agents in Vancouver. They exploit the guise of immigration, extracting money from students and deploying them for anti-India propaganda, including protests in front of the Indian High Commission.
Impact on Indo-Canadian Relations
The killing of Sukha Duneke comes at a time when India and Canada are grappling with strained relations due to the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, another Khalistani terrorist who was shot dead in Surrey, Canada. Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has hinted at potential links between the Indian government and Nijjar’s killing, leading to diplomatic tensions and expulsions of diplomats on both sides.
The demise of Sukha Duneke in Winnipeg sheds light on the dark underbelly of inter-gang rivalries, Khalistani connections, and foreign influence in Canada. It serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in curbing organized crime and maintaining diplomatic relations in an increasingly interconnected world.
