  • Nikhil Gupta’s Story

In November, the US Justice Department revealed that Nikhil Gupta was involved in a foiled plot to assassinate an Indian-American citizen in New York City. The department alleged that Gupta was in contact with an Indian government employee who was also involved in the plot.

Gupta was also accused of being involved in international narcotics and weapons trafficking. To carry out the assassination, Gupta hired a hitman. However, the hitman turned out to be an undercover cop, which led to the plot being foiled.

Gupta was operating from India at the time of the incident. He was arrested upon his arrival in the Czech Republic.

The Gupta family raised concerns about the way Nikhil Gupta was treated in jail. They say that his basic human rights were violated during the arrest and detention. They also state that Gupta is a law-abiding citizen, and the information leaks about his case have put him and his family in danger.

The family’s appeal to the Supreme Court raises several questions about Gupta’s arrest. It also highlights the possibility that his rights may have been violated. One of the most concerning allegations is that Gupta was forced to eat beef while in custody. This is a serious violation of religious freedom and could have serious consequences for Gupta’s health.

The case highlights the need for a fair and transparent legal process. The Gupta family is asking the Supreme Court to ensure that Nikhil Gupta’s rights are protected and that he receives a fair trial.
