In a shocking revelation today, the Southern District of New York unsealed a superseding indictment, accusing Indian national Nikhil Gupta, 52, of orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot to assassinate a U.S.-based leader of the Sikh separatist movement. Gupta, also known as Nick, was arrested by Czech authorities on June 30, 2023, pursuant to the bilateral extradition treaty between the United States and the Czech Republic.
QUEENS, NY – On Friday, November 24, over 200 concerned constituents gathered outside Rep. Grace Meng’s Flushing office to urge her to join the growing chorus of voices calling for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza. The current ceasefire, which went into effect earlier that morning, was already violated by Israeli airstrikes as Gazans attempted to return to their homes in northern Gaza. The death toll in Gaza has now surpassed 15,000 Palestinian lives. Despite the escalating death toll, Rep. Meng has yet to join the 44 Congressional Representatives and 3 Senators who have called for a ceasefire.
