US Court Summons Amitabh Bachchan in Connection With 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots

Bollywood Actor Amitabh Bachchan has been summoned by a US federal court in Los Angeles for his alleged involvement in a human rights violations case.

Amitabh’s Hollywood manager, David A Unger, was served with a copy of the Federal Court summons and complaint by the SFJ on February 23.

New York-based Sikh for Justice or SFJ had filed a lawsuit against Amitabh Bachchan claiming that he had instigated violence against the Sikh community by raising "blood for blood" slogans in 1984.

But Amitabh has denied such allegations. As per Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Mr Bachchan has 21 days after the notice of the summons to respond to the charges of human rights violations.

“If defendant failed to respond by March 17, we will move the court for entry of default judgment imposing compensatory and punitive damages against Bachchan for instigating violence which took lives of thousands of innocent Sikhs during November, 1984,” said Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, legal advisorto SFJ.
