NY Assassination Plot: US Officials Talking To India

WASHINGTON DC (ANI) – US Principal Deputy National Security Advisor Jon Finer acknowledged India’s establishment of a Committee of Enquiry to investigate the plot to kill a US-based leader of the Sikh Separatist Movement and a citizen in New York.

In the statement, the White House said, it noted that the committee had been set up “to investigate lethal plotting in the United States and the importance of holding accountable anyone found responsible.”

His statement came after the Justice Department unsealed an indictment against an Indian national for his involvement in the foiled plot that an Indian government employee who was not identified in the indictment filed in a federal court in Manhattan, recruited an Indian national named Nikhil Gupta to hire a hitman to carry out the assassination, which was foiled by US authorities.

Jon Finer led a US delegation to New Delhi on December 4. He held a meeting with Deputy National Security Advisor Vikram Misri. The two sides conducted an intersessional review of the US-India Initiative on Critical and Emerging Technology (iCET).

The White House said, “In addition, Mr. Finer conducted bilateral and regional consultations with Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, and Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra for in-depth discussions aimed at strengthening coordination and policy alignment across the Indo-Pacific, including the wider Indian Ocean region.”

The two sides discussed the Middle East, including the recent attacks on commercial vessels in the Red Sea and the importance of safeguarding freedom of commercial navigation and plans for a post-conflict Gaza and a pathway towards a two-state solution.

  • The Indian American community needs to re-evaluate whether it is even worth voting for the Democratic Party anymore. They, along with so-called liberals/progressives take our votes for granted while showing so much prejudice against the Indian American community. Pannun has treated to bomb an airplane. He even demanded that Hindus leave Canada. You would think that Democrats/liberals/progressives would be outranged by such hate. After all, don’t they preach about tolerance? Don’t they condemn hate and bigotry? Instead, they defend a terrorist. Seems like liberals and progressives are the true racists against Indians.

  • Indians with any self respect will never ever vote for Democrats , after Donna Brazil of the DNC told Vivek RamaSwamy to go back to where he came from. She is a poster child for overt racism prevalent in the Democratic party.

  • Governments should not resort to “criminal” activities though. Think.
    We all should condemn violence or threats of violence. We all should also condemn criminal activities and assassination plots by governments, especially the ones who claim to represent democracy.
