The Voyage of the Komagata Maru: The Sikh Challenge to Canada's Colour Bar. Page 43, note 14

14 Interview with Kartar Singh. In the five months he spent aboard the Komagata Maru, Kartar Singh spoke to Gurdit Singh only once. He had been talking to Dr Rughunath Singh. Someone reported it so Gurdit Singh summoned him and he had to explain that there was nothing to it, that he was not conspiring. I asked Kartar Singh if he and his fellow passengers were afraid of Gurdit Singh. He said that they weren't really afraid but that Gurdit Singh did not mix with them and stayed mostly in his cabin.
