For the week of July 17, 2022:
Surrey, B.C. businessman Ripudaman Singh Malik had friends. He also had many enemies. In 2005, he was one of two men acquitted of masterminding the June 23, 1985 terrorist bombing of Air India flight 182 off Ireland.
Despite the Crown’s failure to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt, families of the 329 victims held Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri responsible for the worst terrorist incident of its type before 9/11.
On July 14, 75-year-old Malik was gunned down near his Newton office and died at the scene. Police are searching for the killer and the motive.
Retired Province investigative reporter Salim Jiwa is Bob Mackin’s guest this week on theBreaker.news Podcast. Jiwa authored two books about Air India flight 182. He provides reaction and context to last week’s shocking murder.
Also, headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
