New Delhi: The attorney of Congress President, Sonia Gandhi has said that she will not depose before a federal court in New York in a human rights violation lawsuit filed against her by a Sikhs rights group.

Sikh for Justice had filed lawsuit against Gandhi for her role in the 1984 anti Sikh riots.

The group's legal attorney, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun had said earlier that the plaintiffs would request a US federal court to depose the Congress President regarding her presence in the US in September 2013 and on the service of summons on her.

Gandhi's Attorney has said that the group is creating false public expectations.

“SFJ is hopelessly lost in a legal wilderness and cannot comprehend legal principles, including sovereignty, that mandate case-dismissal,” Batra said.
