Chandigarh, Sep 19 (PTI) Senior BJP leader and former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday dismissed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's claim of a "potential link" between Indian government agents and the killing of a Khalistani terrorist in June.

Singh said the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar was the result of a factional feud within the management of the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara, Surrey in Canada.

Nijjar, 45, the chief of the banned Khalistan Tiger Force and one of India's most-wanted terrorists who carried a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head, was shot dead by two unidentified gunmen outside a gurdwara in Surrey in the western Canadian province of British Columbia on June 18.
