Canada looking to examine alleged meddling by India in its last 2 general elections
Ottawa: Canada’s federal commission of inquiry into foreign interference is looking to examine the alleged meddling by India in the country’s last two general elections, Canada-based CTV News reported.

The commission, in a statement on Wednesday, said it had asked the federal government to produce documentation related to these allegations.

The commission’s terms of reference, published last year, direct it to assess possible interference by China, Russia and other foreign state- or non-state actors in the 2019 and 2021 federal elections, the CTV News reported.

The statement signals the commission’s intention to probe any role India might have played in influencing the two ballots, as per CTV News.

The commission’s initial hearings, to begin on Monday, will look at the challenges and limitations of disclosing classified national security information and intelligence to the public.

According to CTV News, an interim report from the commission is due on May 3, with a final report expected by the end of the year.
