The UK has raised the issue of Mr Johal’s detention with the Indian Minister for External Affairs during her recent visit to Delhi on March 31. She also raised it during her previous visit to Delhi on October 22, 2021. In both instances, the Foreign Secretary agreed to meet Mr Johal’s family and local MP. In addition, consular staff visited him on a regular basis to monitor his condition. The UK government has urged India to immediately release Mr Johal.
Dr Johal is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and works in the NHS. He is a specialist in soft tissue knee surgery, with clinical interests in sports injuries and arthroscopic and meniscal surgery. He has considerable experience in both partial and total knee replacements, as well as patellofemoral arthritis. His experience also extends to medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction. Dr Johal also enjoys performing complex reconstructions of the knee.
The plaintiffs’ documents also allege that Mr. Johal possessed the authority to sign all the necessary documents for Land to Home LLC. In the first case, Mr. Johal remained the manager of the company, while the plaintiffs did not. In addition, Mr. Johal had a role in the company’s development. The latter two entities had a similar arrangement when it came to buying the property. During the course of the second case, Mr. Johal was involved in the construction of the new home. The plaintiffs contributed $200,000 to the purchase price. They also signed handwritten documents pertaining to the formation of the Land to Home LLC.
