CHANDIGARH: A team of police personnel from Canada on Tuesday held talks with the top brass of Chandigarh police and CBI here in connection with the bombing of Air India flight ‘Kanishka’ in 1985.

The five-member team is on a visit to Chandigarh and Punjab to probe a few leads in connection with the incident in which 329 people on board the Toronto-Delhi Boeing 747 flight were killed.

The top brass of Chandigarh police remained tight lipped on the issue. However, police sources said the cops provided necessary cooperation to the Canadian team.
