In a shocking incident that stained the name of acclaimed Indian paramilitary force, the Border Security Force (BSF), Canada rejected the immigration application of a retired BSF jawan Moninder Singh Pandher, terming BSF a "notoriously violent paramilitary unit engaged in systematic attacks on civilians and responsible for torturing suspected criminals".

According to media reports, describing the retired BSF security head constable as a member of a persecuting group, the Canadian High Commission claimed that the BSF was responsible for committing crime against humanity.

The letter was drafted by the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi.

In reply, the Home Ministry has asked the Ministry of External Affairs to take up the issue with Canada.
