Sikh Human Rights Group Doubles Reward for Summons Service
A group called Sikhs for Justice wants to serve a federal summons on an Indian head of state, while he’s visiting Milwaukee.
Sikhs for Justice claims that Parkash Singh Badal, the chief minister of the Indian state of Punjab, oversees a police force that has committed human rights violations.
The group says Badal is expected to attend a wedding in Milwaukee on Saturday. Sikhs for Justice is offering a $20,000 reward for anyone who is able to deliver the federal summons to Badal during his trip. The reward is twice what the group previously announced.
A spokesman for Badal has said the group's efforts are "politically motivated.''
