WASHINGTON—U.S. authorities have stopped a plot targeting a Sikh activist and confronted the Indian government about the potential involvement of its agents, according to people familiar with the matter.
The breakup of the plot, targeting Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who is a lawyer for a group called Sikhs for Justice, comes two months after Canadian authorities publicly accused India of playing a role in the killing of another Sikh separatist leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in British Columbia earlier this year.
