Wisconsin Sikhs Want to Serve Indian Official With Federal Summons on Trip to U.S.

Say he's in charge of a police force that has terrorized Sikhs in India

An Indian head of state is expected to visit Wisconsin next week, and a Sikh group accusing him of human-rights violations is offering $10,000 to anyone who serves him with a federal summons while he's here.

The New York-based advocacy group Sikhs for Justice has filed two federal lawsuits in Milwaukee againstParkash Singh Badal, chief minister of the Indian state of Punjab. The first lawsuit was thrown out in May over conflicting reports about whether the person served with court papers was actually Badal.
