When Justin Trudeau came to India for the G20 this month, his plane was “full of cocaine”. The Canadian prime minister even “did not come out of his room for two days”, leaving him unable to attend G20 programmes. 

This is a “credible rumour” from a retired Indian diplomat, who offered up his pearls of wisdom on a news channel also well-known for its pearls of wisdom. Deepak Vohra, former Indian ambassador to Sudan, made these outlandish claims on Deepak Chaurasia’s show on Zee News.

The media must be free and fair, uninfluenced by corporate or state interests. That's why you, the public, need to pay to keep news free.


The show began with Chaurasia attempting to unpack how “Trudeau’s brain works”. To which Vohra said, “Does he have a brain? He is a tiny infant…” He also said his wife spotted Trudeau arriving at Delhi airport and the Canadian prime minister looked “troubled”.

Fascinating stuff.

Deepak and Deepak then got to the heart of the matter. 

Vohra claimed that “sniffer dogs found cocaine on his plane” and that Trudeau “didn’t come out of his room for two days”. “He didn’t go to the President’s dinner. People say he was in a drug-induced stupor,” he said. “...Can’t say what’s going on in his head but I understand his behaviour shows he has freaked out.”

This is why Trudeau is “trying to show he’s a Canadian Rambo”, Vohra added.

Vohra continued in this vein for a couple of minutes. On his part, Chaurasia didn’t cross-question him once he was done. He merely said “Theek hai” and moved on to the next panelist.

If Vohra seems familiar, let us gently nudge your memory. He once called Chinese president Xi Jinping “ping pong ting ling ting ling” on national television.

He’s also being investigated by the CBI in a case of “financial bungling” during his term as ambassador to Sudan from 2007 to 2009.

But that doesn’t stop news channels from inviting him to pontificate on international relations. In the past few weeks, he’s been on Mirror Now, India Today, Republic and Aaj Tak – this list is not exhaustive – to talk about India’s ongoing cold war with Canada.

Then again, our favourite news anchors are currently waging war themselves against Khalistan. They’re currently our first line of defence against Canada – and you can find out all about it on TV Newsance.
