Photos of Justin Trudeau released during his trip to India refute the diplomat’s claim that the Canadian prime minister did not leave his hotel room for two days after traveling on a plane “filled with cocaine.”
Former Indian diplomat Deepak Vohra has accused Justin Trudeau, 51, of hiding in his room for two days – but photos show the Canadian prime minister on the move several times during that two-day period.
Justin Trudeau arrived in New Delhi on Friday (September 8) to attend the G20 summit and posed for a photo outside the plane – which was allegedly “full of cocaine” – with his son Xavier, 16.
The next day, Trudeau was photographed with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who greeted the Canadian with a handshake upon his arrival at Bharat Mandapam, where the G20 conference was being held.
The next day, he was photographed participating in a wreath-laying ceremony at Raj Ghat with Modi and Indonesian President Joko Widodo.
Trudeau was pictured waving alongside his son Xavier, 16, as they arrived in New Delhi for the G20 summit aboard what an Indian diplomat described as a plane full of cocaine.
The next day, Trudeau met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during their G20 summit meeting – proving that the Canadian prime minister did not hide in his hotel room for days as Vohra suggested.
The next day, the Canadian prime minister attended a wreath-laying ceremony at Raj Ghat with Modi and Indonesian President Joko Widodo.
Trudeau was finally photographed at the end of his trip as he left New Delhi on September 12. His departure was delayed due to weather conditions and technical problems with his military aircraft.
Vohra, former Indian ambassador to Sudan, said: “When Justin Trudeau came to India for the G20 this month, his plane was full of cocaine. He didn’t come out of his room for two days.
In a statement to the Toronto Sun, Trudeau’s office said: “This is absolutely false and a disturbing example of how misinformation can find its way into media reporting.”
Vohra’s remarks come after Trudeau alleged Indian officials were responsible for the killing of a Sikh activist in British Columbia.
Surveillance of Indian diplomats in Canada has given rise to allegations that the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, was the result of Indian government involvement.
These allegations sparked a retaliatory exchange between India and Canada.
Nijjar was born in India and became a Canadian citizen in 2007. He had been wanted by India for years before he was shot dead in June outside the temple he led in a Vancouver suburb.
Deepak Vohra, the Indian diplomat who made the allegations (pictured right), appeared on Zee News to accuse Trudeau.
Trudeau attended the G20 summit in New Delhi with other world leaders earlier in September 2023.
Trudeau spoke on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly – that’s when he acknowledged the complexity of the diplomatic situation.
He said: “The decision to share these allegations in the House of Commons was not taken lightly,” he said. “There is no doubt that India is a country of growing importance and one with which we must continue to work.”
“We are not out to provoke or cause trouble, but we are unequivocal about the importance of the rule of law and unequivocal about the importance of protecting Canadians.”
No evidence was shared to support Trudeau’s claims that there were “credible allegations” of Indian involvement in the assassination. The claims angered Indian officials who called the allegations “absurd.”
Vohra discussed Trudeau’s explosive allegations on a Zee News talk show with journalist Deepak Chaurasia.
“In his speech in Parliament, he used the words ‘credible allegations’ against India. How can the allegations be credible? Either this may be credible or it is an allegation. I also have a “credible rumor” to put forward in this matter that “Trudeau” is crazy. It’s a credible rumor.
The diplomat then added that it was a “credible rumor” that sniffer dogs found cocaine on the plane Trudeau flew to India.
Vohra’s allegation also comes after Trudeau had to publicly apologize after the Canadian Parliament recognized a man who fought alongside the Nazis during World War II.
Trudeau said it was “important to fight Russian propaganda” after being asked about the honor of a Nazi in Canadian Parliament.
The ongoing conflict between Canada and India comes after the Canadian government accused India of being involved in the murder of a Sikh on Canadian soil.
Trudeau also came under fire recently after the Canadian Parliament recognized a man who fought alongside the Nazis during World War II.
The prime minister was questioned by reporters on Monday after Yaroslav Hunka, 98, was hailed as a Ukrainian-Canadian war hero during President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Parliament on Friday.
Trudeau admitted it was “extremely upsetting what happened,” blamed the Speaker of the House for the “mistake” – but then launched a message about “Russian disinformation.”
The Toronto Sun also reported that Vohra said: “My wife saw him at the Delhi airport and said Trudeau looked depressed and stressed.
“We don’t know the reason. I don’t know the reality, but social media and some “credible rumors” suggest his plane was full of cocaine.
“He became alone. He is now trying to show that he is a Canadian Rambo and that nothing can go wrong in his presence. India did the right thing by suspending visa services to Canada.
