Sikh sues bank over flashing turban claim

Pointing The Finger

A devout Sikh is suing his former bank for over £50,000 ($81,165) after colleagues allegedly interfered with his turban and asked him whether it 'flashed red in an emergency'.

The Daily Mail reports that Harminder Dhanota, 42, claims he was verbally and physically abused by work colleagues at the London office of Saudi Arabia-based bank Samba Financial Services.

He claims that workmates would dislodge his turban and put a sticky note saying ‘Sign here’ on the back of it when he was not looking.

Dhanota told a London tribunal that his immediate boss also insulted his religion by showing him porn on a mobile phone and boasted about organising prostitutes for his 'dirty Arab' business associates.

Married father-of-three Dhanota said that Talso offended him by asking him whether he was 'shagging' female colleagues.

Samba Financial Group strongly denies all Dhanota’s allegations and is vigorously contesting his claim. The case continues.
