An Indian man named Nikhil Gupta faces charges in the United States for his role in a foiled plan to murder a Sikh separatist leader living in New York City.

This charge came to light following a report by the Financial Times, revealing the US authorities’ prevention of an assassination plot targeting Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the head of Sikhs for Justice. India has acknowledged the report seriously, with the Ministry of External Affairs setting up a committee to address the security concerns raised by the US. However, India has not yet responded directly to the charges.

According to Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Gupta was part of a conspiracy operating from India to eliminate a US citizen of Indian descent advocating for a separate Sikh state in India. Williams emphasized that such attempts to harm US citizens, both domestically and internationally, will be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted.
