A US court has ordered Congress president Sonia Gandhi to provide a copy of her passport as documentary evidence by April 7 to determine if she was in America in September last year when a Sikh rights group claims it had served summons on her in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.


Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) claims that Sonia was served summons in September last year when she had allegedly visited Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York for some medical examinations.

The group has challenged in court Gandhi’s claim that she was not present in New York in September last year and so was not served with summons in the rights violation lawsuit filed against her by the SFJ.

Judge Brian Cogan said Sonia has not demonstrated that she was not in the US between September 2 and 12 last.
