New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just gone to Italy to attend the G-7 summit. US President Joe Biden is also there. The conference has been organized in Puglia, southern Italy. It is believed that Modi and Biden can also meet in private. So will Biden raise the issue of the conspiracy to kill 'Khalistani terrorist' Gurpatwant Pannu in his country in front of Modi? As soon as Biden left for Italy, the White House said that there is a possibility of a 'meeting' between the two leaders. At the same time, while talking to reporters in Air Force One, US National Security Advisor (NSA) Jack Sullivan also said that the failed conspiracy to kill American citizen Gurpatwant Singh Pannu will remain a topic of constant conversation between the US and India, including very senior level talks. Diplomatic sources did not rule out the possibility of this issue being raised in the Modi-Biden meeting. Biden raised this issue during his meeting with Modi in September. Sullivan himself is coming to India next week. Then they can discuss the progress or lack of it in India's investigation of US allegations. Although the visit has not been officially announced yet, Sullivan is scheduled to arrive here on June 18.

Why is America supporting Pannu?

In fact, Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannu has taken US citizenship and is serious about the safety of its citizens. America got angry when it came to light that a conspiracy was hatched to kill Pannu. The US Justice Department expressed anger over the fact that an Indian official contacted an Indian citizen in search of a contract killer to kill Pannu. It is claimed that the US intelligence department was aware of this conspiracy, so Pannu's life was saved. On America's allegation, India has formed a high-level committee to investigate the incident. Let us know every important thing related to this matter…

Initial allegations: The US Justice Department filed the suit in a federal court in Manhattan, alleging that an employee of the Indian government hired an Indian national, Nikhil Gupta, to find an assassin to murder Pannu. The plot was reportedly foiled by US authorities.

Arrest of Nikhil Gupta: Czechoslovak government officials arrested Gupta on June 30, 2023 under the bilateral extradition treaty between the US and the Czech Republic. Gupta is accused of contract killing. The maximum punishment for this can be 10 years.

Official US response: The US State Department refrained from commenting on the matter. It said that due process of investigation will be followed and it will not say anything until the allegations are proven in the court.

Indian Government's response: India denied the allegations, calling them “unwarranted and baseless”. The Indian government has set up a high-level committee to investigate the matter.

International reactions: The alleged plot attracted international attention. Russia questioned the evidence provided by the US. It said there was no concrete evidence of the involvement of Indian citizens in the plot to assassinate Pannu.

Extradition Decision: The Czech court ruled that Gupta could be extradited to the United States to face the charges against him.

Pannu is still giving threats

The matter is still legally entangled. The US has continued the investigation against Nikhil Gupta while pursuing legal action. The Indian government has been denying any involvement in the alleged conspiracy and international observers are keeping a close watch on developments in the case. On the other hand, terrorist Pannu continues to openly threaten India by releasing videos from time to time, but the US does not pay attention to his actions. Meanwhile, Ajit Doval's tenure as National Security Advisor (NSA) has been extended in the third term of the Narendra Modi government. The question is whether the US can be angry with this as well. In fact, it believes that Doval is behind the alleged conspiracy to kill Pannu.
