Washington. America is awaiting the results of the investigation being conducted by India on allegations related to the conspiracy to murder Sikh separatist leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannu in America. An official of the Foreign Department gave this information. They (Indian government) have formed a committee to investigate the matter and the investigation is ongoing, we will await the outcome of the investigation, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said at his daily press conference on Monday. But we’ve made it clear that this is something we’re taking seriously and we think they should take it seriously too.

Miller was responding to a question on allegations that Indian government officials were involved in a conspiracy to assassinate American citizen and separatist Sikh leader Pannu. “I will refer you to Canadian authorities to talk about the details of the investigation there,” he told reporters. Regarding the indictment, I will ask the Justice Department to present the details in detail.” He said ”Only after this will I be able to say that as soon as this matter came to the Ministry of External Affairs, we had made it clear that these allegations were first made public. And this is something that India should take seriously and investigate.

The ‘Washington Post’, citing unnamed sources, recently named a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) officer in connection with an alleged plot to kill Pannu in the US last year. Criticizing the report, India has rejected these claims and said that the report makes unfair and unsubstantiated allegations on a serious matter and the investigation into the matter is ongoing. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said in New Delhi last Tuesday that the report in question makes unfair and baseless allegations on a serious matter. Jaiswal said a high-level committee formed by New Delhi to investigate information provided by the US on the alleged conspiracy is still probing the matter.
