The MQ-9B Predator drone deal had been announced during PM Narendra Modi's visit to the US in June 2023.


In December, it was put on hold by a Senate committee pending an investigation into an alleged Indian assassination plot on US soil. The deal will now be confirmed after approval from the US Congress.

According to Reuters news agency, Senator Ben Cardin said he had ended his "hold" on the agreement for the deal after the US government agreed to fully investigate the assassination plot.
