Kanishka memorial vandalised

TORONTO: A monument built for the victims of the 1985 bombing of Air India's Kanishka flight has been vandalised ahead of the incident's 25th anniversary.

The Indian-Canadian community is outraged that a stainless steel gnomon or shadow caster, which produces a shadow on a memorial sundial when lit by the sun, was stolen earlier this month. Graffiti with black paint were also seen on the face of the sundial.

The monument, located in Humber Bay Park East in Toronto, also features a wall naming the 329 people who were killed when a bomb exploded on Kanishka Flight 182 on June 23, 1985.

Two baggage handlers killed by an associated bomb at Narita Airport, Japan, are also honoured on the wall. — PTI
