Dal Khalsa’s Satement on India’s Findings on Foiled Plot of Killing Sikh Activist on US Soil

March 23, 2024 | By

Amritsar: Dal Khalsa, a pro-Sikh freedom group, has issued a written statement after media reports made certain revelations about India’s findings on involvement of Indian officials in a plot to kill a Sikh activist on US soil. The plot was foiled by US agencies.

Full text of statement released by the Dal Khalsa reads as follows:

Hand over former RAW official to US authorities for criminal proceedings if India wants world and Sikhs to believe in his findings: Dal Khalsa

Dal Khalsa trashed the findings of a probe carried out by the Union Government in which it has exonerated itself from the allegations of its role in foiled plot to kill US-based Sikh separatist leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

It’s preposterous to think that New Delhi will admit its direct role, said party leaders at a press conference held at the party office here today. 

We request the US authorities to hold an independent probe into the matter and not to believe in India’s so-called investigation, said party leaders. The perpetrators must be brought to justice within the United States, said Kanwar Pal Singh. He further added that theirs organisation will write a letter to US administration in this regard. 

In its findings the Modi dispensation has already admitted that a person who was directly involved in the alleged unauthorised plot was no longer working for RAW: its external intelligence agency. 

If India wants that the world and the aggrieved Sikh community trust its words, the New Delhi should hand over that former RAW official to US authorities for criminal proceedings against him in the US court of law, he said and added that short of that would be construed as India’s deep state involvement in transnational repression on Sikhs since May last year. 

He said the Indian govt has blamed rogue elements for hatching up plot against Pannu on the foreign soil. 

He said the Modi government must come clean as to who they are, when did they turn rogue and what did the government do, if anything, before the exposure by Canadian and US governments.

Hitting on the govt, he said India used to accuse rogue elements or non state actors in Pakistan for carrying terror acts on its soil in the past. Now, India’s admittance that its rouge elements are committing terror acts extrajudicially on foreign soil is a matter of grave concern. 

US policymakers must not trust India’s authoritarian regime, especially after attempts to harm Sikh Americans on US soil by accepting India’s findings, said Paramjit Singh Mand working president of the organisation. 

On the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal, Kanwar Pal Singh said it has proven beyond doubt that India’s political system is deeply plagued with corruption. The bureaucrat who became politician on anti-corruption plank to cleanse political system from deep rooted corruption has ended up in jail under corruption charges. 

Referring to the wrongful detentions of Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Dibrugarh detainees under NSA and furthering their detention for one year term and creating hurdles in the release of life convict Prof Devinder Singh Bhullar, Paramjit said Kejriwal and his party led govt has committed excesses and repression on the people of Punjab.

To drive his point home, he quoted from the Gurbani, ‘as you sow so shall you reap’. Prof
