India has set up an inquiry committee to look into inputs provided by the US in connection with the alleged plot to kill Pannun.

Sources said Wray was accompanied by the FBI legal team and national security and law enforcement officials.

“During the meeting, candid and wide-ranging discussions were held on a host of issues, including the acts and activities of Terrorist-Organised Criminal Network, ongoing investigations in the US in the attack on the Indian Consulate in San Francisco, investigation of cyber-terror and cyber-crimes of various kinds,” the NIA said in a statement on Tuesday night.
