Ripudaman Singh Malik, 75, was one of the accused in the 1985 bombing of Air India’s Flight 182 Kanishka that killed 331 people, mostly from the Toronto and Vancouver areas. He was also a close associate of Talwinder Singh Parmar, the alleged mastermind of the Air India bombing.
1985 Air India Bombing Suspect Shot Dead In Canada
In western Canada, a suspect in the 1985 Air India bombings that claimed 331 lives was fatally shot on Thursday in what appears to have been a deliberate attack, according to local media.
According to reports, Ripudaman Singh Malik, a former supporter of the Sikh separatist Khalistan movement who was in 2005 found not guilty in the Air India mass murder conspiracy due to a lack of evidence, was shot in front of his clothing store in the Vancouver, British Columbia, area.
In a statement, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police claimed a male was found “suffering from gunshot wounds” and had “succumbed to his injuries (at the) site.” They would not release the victim’s name, though.
Constable Sarbjit Sangha stated, “This appears to be a targeted shooting,” and added that a vehicle thought to be driven by the gunmen was found nearby, “completely engulfed in fire.”
The gunmen probably escaped in another getaway car, which police are still looking for, after starting the fire, she said.
After setting the blaze, it’s likely the shooters fled in another getaway vehicle that police are now searching for, she said.
Air India Flight 182
The bombing of Air India Flight 182 off the coast of Ireland that killed all 329 passengers and crew had been the deadliest act of airborne terrorism prior to the September 11 attacks in the United States.
It came as another bomb exploded at Japan’s Narita airport, killing two workers who were loading baggage onto an Air India flight.
Later, both suitcase bombs were linked to Vancouver, which has a sizable Sikh immigrant community.
Only Inderjit Singh Reyat, who made the bombs and lied during the trials of other terrorists, including Malik, has been found guilty of participating in the scheme.
In 2005, Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri were found not guilty, a decision that the prosecution claimed would have been reversed if Reyat had been truthful when testifying.
Reyat served 20 years in prison before being released on parole in 2016.
Attackers reportedly wanted vengeance for Indian troops assaulting the Golden Temple in Amritsar amid a crackdown on Sikhs agitating for an independent nation at the time of the attack.
