Washington DC: In an explosive report, The Financial Times claimed that the Indian government earlier this year planned to eliminate Sikh separatist and the self-proclaimed founder of the banned terror-designated group Sikh For Justice (SFJ), Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and that the US foiled an attack on the separatist group leader. The report also claimed that the US warned New Delhi against carrying out any such plans.

Though the report did not elicit any reaction or response from the authorities in India, it soon became the talking point on social media. The bureau chief of The Washinton Post, Gerry Shih, took to X and wrote about the "scoop" by the Financial Times journalist Demetri.

According to the report, the attempt was made this summer and was foiled by the US agencies, following which India was also warned about the incident.
