NEW DELHI, April 29: India on Monday summoned the Canadian deputy high commissioner and lodged a strong protest over the raising of pro-Khalistan slogans at a public event in Toronto in the presence of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) described the raising of the slogans at the event as “disturbing” and said it illustrated once again the political space that has been given in Canada to “separatism, extremism and violence”.
