A group of Indian workers have filed an updated lawsuit against Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), alleging that the organization had cajoled and coerced workers from India to work for little pay.

According to The New York Times report, the lawsuit was filed in May, and federal officials raided the New Jersey temple on the same day for violating labor and immigration law.
