A journalist from a local daily handed Nath a photocopy of the summons moments before a process server knocked on the doors of the New York consulate with the legal documents. Nath has been issued a court summons in a civil suit filed against him by Jasbir Singh and Mahinder Singh on behalf of the New York-based Sikhs for Justice. Nath said he was â€œappalledâ€ by the allegations and denied any wrongdoing.
Although Mr. Nath has not been convicted of anything, and is unlikely to face trial in America, it should provide a (temporary) shock to those in power who are still shielded from prosecution.
