Unbelievable conspiracy exposed: US-India join forces against assassination plot of Khalistani separatist Pannun
In an alarming turn of events, White House deputy national security adviser Jon Finer led a US delegation to India’s capital New Delhi, discussing the formation of an investigative panel. This panel is set to probe a foiled assassination plot targeting Khalistani separatist leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, head of the banned Sikhs For Justice outfit.
High-Level Collaboration and Investigation
The White House confirmed the establishment of a Committee of Enquiry in a gripping statement, highlighting the gravity of the situation. This move follows New Delhi’s commitment last week to a high-level panel probing the alleged assassination attempt, with MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi expressing deep concern over the international nexus of organized crime and extremism.
Shocking Charges and International Response
In a stunning revelation, the United States recently charged Indian national Nikhil Gupta with a murder-for-hire plot to assassinate Pannun, a dual citizen of America and Canada. US Attorney Damian Williams’s statement underscored the severity of the conspiracy, planned in India to be executed in New York City.
Global Implications and Tensions Rise
This case has sparked international tensions, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleging Indian involvement in another Sikh separatist’s death. The Indian External Affairs Ministry is also scrutinizing US reports on the alleged nexus between criminals and terrorists.
