A US court has dismissed a $ 100 million lawsuit filed against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Secretary Amit Shah. The case was brought by a separatist faction in Kashmir-Khalistan and two others. The petitioners were unable to appear on the two dates of the hearing after which the case was closed.
The lawsuit was filed after the “ Howdy Modi ” event held on September 19, 2019 in Houston, Texas. The petition challenged the Indian Parliament’s decision under which the special state status of Jammu and Kashmir was abolished. The petitioners demanded $ 100 million in compensation from Modi, Shah and Lieutenant General Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon.
Dhillon is the Director General of the Defense Intelligence Agency
Dhillon is currently the Director General of the Defense Intelligence Agency and is the Deputy Chief of the Integrated Defense Staff under the Chief of the Defense Staff (CDS). In an order dated October 6, Judge Francis H. Stacey of the U.S. South Texas District Court said the “ Khalistan Referendum Front ” had done nothing to prosecute the case and that two times the hearing date had been set. But did not even attend.
With this, the judge dismissed the case. Judge Andrew Hannen concluded the case on October 22 in Texas district court. Apart from the “Kashmir Khalistan Referendum Front”, two other petitioners have not been identified.
