Surjan Singh Gill was a suspect in the bombing of Air India Flight 182, and has been alleged to have been a possible Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) mole.[1]

Gill referred to himself by the self-proclaimed title of "Consular General of Khalistan", and was a member of Babbar Khalsa up until three days before the bombing .[1] It has been suggested that CSIS wanted to pull "their man" out of the group as soon as they realised that a serious plot was underway and about to take place.[1]

Although a central figure in the investigation, Gill was never charged and disappeared after flying to the United Kingdom.[2]
