Justin Trudeau's national security adviser says it's the Canadian government's fault that a convicted attempted assassin was invited to events with the prime minister during his trouble-plagued trip to India. Jean was testifying before the House of Commons public safety and national security.

National security adviser Daniel Jean says he tried to dispel misinformation over Jaspal Atwal's presence at an event with the prime minister. The Tories are calling on Justin Trudeau to withdraw statements he made about the controversy.

OTTAWA - National security adviser Daniel Jean says it was important to brief the media about the prime minister's visit to India to dispel "co-ordinated misinformation" about the presence of a convicted attempted assassin at an event on the trouble-plagued trip.

Jean appeared Monday before the House of Commons public safety and national security committee to explain his role in the controversy, which has plagued Justin Trudeau's government for weeks.

Jean has been at the centre of a political uproar over the trip after giving a background briefing to reporters in which he suggested factions in the Indian government were behind the embarrassing revelation that a convicted attempted assassin had been invited to two prime ministerial events.

During the media briefing, Jean advanced the theory that rogue factions in India may have arranged for Atwal's attendance in a bid to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from becoming too cosy with a foreign government they believe is sympathetic to extremist Sikh separatists.

Jean said Monday the briefing was intended to dispel public suggestions that Canadian agencies could have acted sooner to ensure Atwal did not attend the first event.

"I provided information to counter the false allegations," Jean said.

"We take the relationship with India very seriously. We remain vigilant to any potential threat."
