Gurpatwant Singh Pannun’s chilling ultimatum: Indian Parliament targeted
In a startling revelation, Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun has threatened to blow up the Indian Parliament on or before December 13, coinciding with the anniversary of the 2001 attack. This sensational threat, emanating from Pannun, who holds dual citizenship of the US and Canada, has sent shockwaves across India and beyond. Featuring alongside a poster of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru with the audacious caption ‘Delhi Banega Khalistan’ (Delhi will turn into Khalistan), Pannun’s video has stirred immense controversy and alarm.
Security Tightened in Delhi Amidst Parliament Threat
As the threat looms over the ongoing Winter Session of the Indian Parliament, scheduled to end on December 22, Indian security agencies have significantly ramped up security measures in and around the national capital Delhi. The heightened alertness aims to thwart any potential activities by operatives of the US-based Sikh for Justice organization, founded by Pannun. The Indian government, taking no chances, has bolstered its counterterrorism strategies to ensure the safety of its parliamentary proceedings and the capital city.
US-India Tensions Rise Over Assassination Plot and Counter Charges
Adding to the tension, the US recently charged an Indian man with attempting to assassinate the Khalistani leader on American soil. The US Justice Department revealed that Nikhil Gupta, an Indian-origin drug trafficker, was detained for allegedly collaborating with an undercover cop and hiring an informant to kill Pannun. Following Gupta’s extradition to the US, India has distanced itself from the incident, expressing concerns over the allegations linking it to the assassination attempt.
