Conspiracy to murder Gurpatwant Singh Pannun in America: Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson said this

The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has said that charges have not been brought against the Indian official in the US court. Information about the inputs India has received from America cannot be made public.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi has said in response to a question, "I want to clarify one thing that the case is not being filed against the Indian officer in the American court. We cannot share the inputs we have received but if you are talking about a legal case, a person has been charged in an American court."

He said further, “The allegation that the man was working with Indian officials is a matter of concern. We have repeatedly said this is not India's policy. Our high-level investigative panel is looking into the nexus of drug rackets and organized crime. Will also investigate the matter from this angle also.”

America has claimed to have exposed a conspiracy to murder a Sikh separatist leader and an American citizen on American soil.

A person named Nikhil Gupta is accused of giving a contract to a hired killer to kill a separatist leader in exchange for one lakh dollars (about Rs 83 lakh) in cash.

There are allegations that Nikhil Gupta was being guided by an Indian officer. The Indian officer is not named in the indictment.

On November 18, India constituted a high-level inquiry panel to investigate these allegations.
