Trudeau denies being on plane ‘full of cocaine’ and not leaving room for days
Trudeau on links between India and killing of Canadian citizen
Justin Trudeau has furiously denied allegations he recently flew to India on a plane “full of cocaine” and that he didn’t leave his hotel room for two days when he landed in the country.
Former Indian diplomat Deepak Vohra made extraordinary claims against the Canada’s Prime Minister during a TV interview on Monday.
He told the Indian television network Zee News: “When Justin Trudeau came to India for the G20 this month, his plane was full of cocaine. He did not come out of his room for two days.”
Trudeau’s office has furiously dismissed the allegations, telling the Toronto Sun in a statement: “This is absolutely false and a troubling example of how disinformation can make its way into media reporting.”
According to the Canadian daily newspapers, Vohra was also quoted as saying in his TV interview: “My wife saw him at the Delhi airport and said that Trudeau looked depressed and stressed.
“We don’t know the reason. I don’t know the reality, but social media and some ‘credible rumours’ suggest that his plane was full of cocaine.
“He has become lonely. He is now trying to show that he is a Canadian Rambo and nothing can go wrong in his presence. India has done the right thing by suspending visa services in Canada.”
Trudeau’s recent visit to India seemingly intensified tensions with Canada after he alleged Indian officials played a role in the assassination of a Sikh activist in British Columbia.
The accusation from the Canadian Prime Minister over the killing of 45-year-old Sikh separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on June 18 has triggered a widening rift around diplomatic expulsions.
Trudeau’s allegations of Indian government involvement in the crime were partly based on ntercepted communications between Indian officials and the country’s diplomats in Canada, an official told the Associated Press.
The unnamed person alleged some of this intelligence was provided by a ‘Five Eyes’ member – the intelligence-sharing alliance that includes Canada, the US, Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
The official did not provide details on who exactly provided the intelligence, what was contained in the communications or how they were obtained.
Tensions between the two countries have exploded after Trudeau told parliament on Monday there were ‘credible allegations’ of Indian involvement in the assassination on Canadian soil.
India has dismissed the allegations as “absurd” but they have triggered a furious back and forth between the two countries, with each expelling a diplomat.

In March, Narendra Modi’s government summoned the Canadian high commissioner in New Delhi to complain about Sikh independence protests in Canada.
The apparent frosty tensions between Trudeau and Modi were seemingly apparent at the G20 summit in India earlier this month and a few days later, Canada canceled a planned trade mission to India.
This row comes with Trudeau apologising for the Canadian parliament’s recognition of a man who fought alongside the Nazis in World War II.
Yaroslav Hunka fought for the First Ukrainian Division – also known as the Waffen-SS Galicia Division, or the SS 14th Waffen Division – a voluntary unit that was under the command of the Nazis and fought against Russia.

The 98-year-old was welcomed to the Canadian parliament during Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Ottawa last Friday.
He was invited by House Speaker Anthony Rota – who has since apologised for the error. It is believed Trudeau and Zelensky were both unaware of Hunka’s history.
In a televised address, the Canadian Prime minister said: “This is a mistake that deeply embarrassed Parliament and Canada.
“It was a horrendous violation of the memory of the millions of people who died in the Holocaust and it was deeply, deeply painful for Jewish people.”
