CASE ENTRY

Singh v. Barr

After a Sikh man provides a statement to lawyers for another Sikh who was “disappeared” by Punjabi police, he is arrested, beaten, urinated upon, and forced to recant his statement. He flees to the U.S. and seeks asylum. Ninth Circuit: Maybe the police weren’t retaliating against you because of your “anti-police views”; maybe they were just mad at you for snitching. Back to India you go.
