Shah had filed a civil suit against two agents, Czellecz and JW Holloway, as a response to being detained and interrogated without reasonable suspicion during a march protesting the DNC. Quoted in an article on IndiaWest.com, Shah said “All of a sudden, two guys grabbed me from behind and shoved me into an alley, then forced me to sit down on some steps and handcuffed me.” Shah was held for about five hours while being interrogated.
