Indian citizen Nikhil Gupta has been extradited in the Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannu case. The Czech Republic has extradited him to the US. Gurpatwant Singh Pannu is accused of plotting a murder on American soil. Nikhil Gupta is the accused in this case. The Federal Bureau of Prisons website has reported the extradition of Nikhil Gupta. Gurpatwant Singh Pannu is an active Khalistani terrorist against India. But he has US citizenship. 52-year-old Nikhil Gupta is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. This is a federal administrative detention center. Nikhil Gupta may be tried in a New York federal court today.

Last month, a Czech court rejected Nikhil Gupta’s petition challenging his extradition to the US. This paved the way for his extradition to the Czech Republic. It was said that Gupta would be handed over to the US any day after the court’s decision. Nikhil Gupta moved from India to the Czech Republic in June last year. Czech authorities arrested him there. A spokesperson for the US Justice Department declined to comment on the extradition. Apart from this, Gupta’s US lawyer, Attorney Jeffrey Chibroev, also declined to comment immediately. Czech authorities have also not made any statement.

Allegations against Indian agents

There are Khalistani terrorists in America and Canada. The allegations of conspiracy to kill them there have affected the relations between the two countries. The Indian government has been continuously denying all these allegations. In June 2023, Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was killed in Canada. Canada alleged that Indian agents were involved in this case and the Indian government was also involved. India immediately rejected the allegations. After this, relations between the two countries became tense. Khalistani terrorist Pannu has citizenship of both America and Canada.
