Nikhil Gupta, a 52-year-old Indian national, has been extradited from the Czech Republic to the United States to face charges related to a foiled assassination plot.

According to the US Federal Bureau of Prisons website and a source familiar with the matter, Gupta is currently being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. US authorities suspect Gupta of involvement in a plan to kill Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a US resident and advocate for an independent Sikh state, also known as Khalistan.

Details of the Nikhil Gupta’s Alleged Plot Remain Unclear

News reports from June 2023 indicate that Gupta was detained in Prague last year. The extent of his alleged involvement and the details of the plot itself remain unclear. It is unconfirmed whether Gupta has any connection to the Indian government, as was reported by some Indian media outlets.

Pannun Designated a Terrorist by India

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun is designated a terrorist by the Indian government. He leads the Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) organization, which advocates for a separate Sikh homeland in Punjab, India. The SFJ has been blamed for violent incidents in India, though Pannun himself denies involvement.

Legal Proceedings to Follow

Nikhil Gupta is expected to be arraigned on the charges against him in the coming days. It is likely that further details concerning the alleged plot and Gupta’s role will be revealed during the legal proceedings. As the legal proceedings unfold, the world watches closely, awaiting further developments in this high-profile case that spans continents and ideologies. The fate of Nikhil Gupta hangs in the balance, and justice will ultimately determine whether he played a role in the alleged plot to kill Khalistani separatist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun on American soil1.
