A federal court in New York issues a summon against Modi for his alleged role in presiding over the 2002 Gujarat sectarian riots in which more than 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed, while he was the chief minister of the Gujarat state. The New York-based American Justice Centre, a non profit organisation, obtained the summons from the US Federal Court for the Southern District of New York in a suit filed with two survivors of what it called the “horrific and organized violence of Gujarat 2002”. The summon requires Modi to respond within 21 days after it is served.
