Ready To Look Into Plot: Modi Breaks Silence, Reaffirms Ties With US

NEW DELHI (ANI) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has, for the first time responded to charges of the US of an Indian link to an alleged foiled assassination plot against India-designated terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, and stated he will “look into” any evidence, adding that “few incidents” would not affect US-India ties.

He also said, “There is strong bipartisan support for the strengthening of this relationship, which is a clear indicator of a mature and stable partnership.”

“Security and counter-terrorism cooperation has been a key component of our partnership,” he said. “I don’t think it is appropriate to link a few incidents with diplomatic relations between the two countries,” PM Modi added.

In an interview with the UK-based newspaper Financial Times, he said, “If a citizen of ours has done anything good or bad, we are ready to look into it. Our commitment is to the rule of law.”

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who was declared a ‘designated individual terrorist’ by the Government of India on July 1, 2020, has been actively exhorting Punjab-based gangsters and youth over social media to fight for the cause of the independent state of Khalistan, NIA investigations have shown.

Pannun has been under the NIA lens since 2019 when the anti-terror agency registered its first case against him. Modi raised concerns over extremist activities and said, India was “deeply concerned about the activities of certain extremist groups based overseas,” adding “These elements, under the guise of freedom of expression, have engaged in intimidation and incited violence,” he told the Financial Times.

  • No one is surprised by Prime Minister Modi’s statement that he would look into the allegation of murder of a foreign citizen in a foreign land by the Government of India. This kind of uncivilized action is abhorrent to people of all civilized nations. They will sweep their action under the rug until the smell becomes obnoxious and spreads the world.
