US Sikh body gets time to amend its Human Rights violations plea against Sonia Gandhi

Sonia Gandhi LoNew York, Nov 21, 2013 (Agency)

 

A US federal Court has given Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) time till Dec 3 to file an amended complaint against Congress President Sonia Gandhi in an alleged human rights violation case.

Despite opposition from Gandhi's attorneys, the federal court here Monday granted the Sikh rights body's request for more time to amend its complaint about her role in protecting and shielding Congress party leaders who allegedly participated in the November 1984 anti-Sikh violence.

SFJ and violence victims are seeking compensatory and punitive damages against Gandhi for allegedly shielding and protecting Kamal Nath, Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler and other Congress party leaders.

While SFJ claims that the court summons were served on Sonia Gandhi through hospital and security staff at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York on Sep 9, Gandhi's attorneys are challenging the service of summons.
