A US court has dismissed a $ 100 million lawsuit filed against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The case was filed by a separatist Kashmir-Khalistan faction and two other individuals.
The petitioners did not appear on the two dates of the hearing, after which the case was dismissed. The petitioners were represented in the court by separatist Gurpatwant Singh Pannu. The case was filed after the 'Howdy Modi' event held on September 19, 2019 in Houston, Texas.
The petition challenged the decision of the Parliament of India under which Article 370 was abolished from Jammu and Kashmir. The petitioners had absurdly demanded $ 100 million as compensation from Modi, Shah, and Lieutenant General Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon.
