In the video, Pannu also alleged that Indian agencies were conspiring to kill him. Gurpatwant Singh Pannun is the head of the US-based Sikhs for Justice. Indian security agencies and Delhi Police are on high alert after receiving a message threatening to attack Parliament. Earlier, Pannu had appeared in a video asking Sikhs not to travel on Air India. At the same time, national media reports that Pannu has received instructions from Pakistan’s spy agency ISI to move against India.
Last June, the US claimed to have thwarted an assassination attempt on Pannu. It was also alleged that the accused in this incident has Indian connections. Nikhil Gupta, who is linked to drug trafficking in the attempted murder case against Pannu, was detained at the Prague airport by the Czech authorities at the request of the US government. Gupta was extradited to the US in the first week of November.
The pro-Khalistan faction had accused Taranjit Singh Sandhu, the Indian ambassador to the US, of involvement in the assassination attempt against Pannu. Earlier, Khalistan separatists had opposed Indian High Commissioner to UK Vikram Duraiswamy’s entry into a gurdwara in Scotland. This incident came at a time when Canada accused India of its role in the killing of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
