Surrey, where Nijjar lived, is about 30 km southeast of Vancouver, the largest city in the western Canadian province of British Columbia. Nijjar had moved from Punjab to Canada in 1997, where he was working as a plumber. He married in the North American country and had two children. He had been the chairman of the Surrey Gurdwara body since 2020. Nijjar belonged to the Bhar Singh Pura village in the Phillaur subdivision of Jalandhar district. His parents had visited the town before the first closure due to Cvid-19.

According to the Indian government, as the leader of the KTF, Nijjar was actively involved in running and networking the organization, and in training and funding its members. He allegedly visited Pakistan in 2013-14 to meet Jagtar Singh Tara, who is currently serving a life sentence in India for his role in the assassination of former Punjab Prime Minister Beant Singh. Tara had escaped from jail in 2004, but was arrested again in Thailand in 2015 and taken to India. Najjar was also a friend of Dal Khalsa leader Rajinder Singh, one of the five hijackers of an Indian Airlines flight in 1981. Rajinder Singh is currently in Pakistan.
