US court dismisses rights violation case against Badal

Washington, USA: A United States’ court has dismissed an alleged human rights violation case against Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, saying the New York-based Sikh group never physically served the summons on him.

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in its order upheld the decision that Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) did not effectuate the service of the Federal Court summons on Badal.

Rights group Sikhs for Justice and Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) headed by Simranjit Singh Mann, would now file a “Motion to Remand”, the case to District Court to establish that alternative service of summons through the Hague had been accomplished on Badal, a media release said.

The statement came after the Court of Appeals dismissed the case that Badal was personally served with Federal Court summons at Oak Creek High School on August 9 as claimed by Sikhs for Justice.
