'Free advice': India rejects China's comments on Khalistan terrorist


An Indian has been charged by the US Department of Justice with killing Pannun for hire.

New Delhi:

Hitting back at China over its comments on the investigation into the alleged foiled assassination plot against Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the Ministry of External Affairs said India and the United States are capable of resolving any issues between the two countries.

MEA spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal added that there was no role for “speculative comments and unnecessary advice” by “unconnected third parties”.

This comes after Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lin Jian said at a press conference that relevant countries must adhere to international law and basic norms of international relations.

“China has taken note of the reports. We hope that the relevant countries will seriously comply with international law and basic norms of international relations,” Mr Jian said.

Addressing the weekly press conference on Thursday, the MEA spokesperson said, “India and the United States, as two countries adhering to the rule of law, are capable of addressing any issues we have between us. There is no role for any speculative comments and unnecessary advice from unrelated third parties.”

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun is an Indian-designated terrorist who holds American and Canadian citizenship.

According to the US Department of Justice indictment, an Indian national, Nikhil Gupta, who is currently in custody, has been charged with Pannun’s murder-for-hire.

The US Department of Justice had alleged that an Indian government official, who was not named in the indictment filed, recruited the Indian national to hire a hitman to allegedly carry out Pannun’s murder, which was ordered by US authorities was foiled.

Last year, India formed a committee to investigate allegations of the foiled assassination plot.

In December last year, US Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer acknowledged that India had set up a commission of inquiry to probe the plot to assassinate Pannun in the US.
