MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A Sikh religious group will try for a second time next week to give a federal summons to the chief minister of a state in India.
Sikhs-for-Justice tried serving a summons last year against Punjab minister Parkash Singh Badal.
The group’s first effort was struck down in May, after a judge ruled that the wrong person was served.
The Sikh group accused Badal of human rights violations in his home country – and Badal’s son has been added as a defendant in a pair of lawsuits filed in federal court in Milwaukee.
Badal is scheduled to be in Wisconsin for a wedding next Friday.
This time, the justice group is vowing to be much more careful – and vigilant – in tracking down the defendants.
The group has hired three professional servers to find Badal and his son. They’ll check out airports in Milwaukee and Chicago – and they’ll stake out the wedding.
Sikhs for Justice has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who can successfully serves the papers.
