A US court has dismissed an alleged human rights violation case against Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, saying that 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 the Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) did not effectuate service of the federal court summons on Badal.

Rights group SFJ and Simranjit Singh Mann-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) will now file a 'motion to remand' the case to the district court to establish that alternative service of summons through Hague has 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 the federal court summons at Oak Creek High School on August 9, as claimed by the SFJ.
