Sonia Gandhi to contest case filed against her in US court

The case against Sonia Gandhi was filed by a US based human rights group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) last month.

Her lawyer Ravi Batra submitted to the court that she was at a hospital for treatment of an undisclosed medical condition and was not served with summons and also contested that the court had no jurisdiction over the matter. However SFJ filed a service affidavit claiming alternate service to Gandhi on 9 September, 2013 through the staff of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where she had gone for her treatment. The summons were issued by the US court on 3 September.

The SFJ affidavit also claimed that a security agent was also handed over the summons as the court had allowed service of summons through hospital staff or security agents including those of the US Secret Service and the FBI.
