Sikh gang guilty of UK attack on India temple assault general
LONDON (AFP) - A Sikh gang was found guilty by a British court on Wednesday of slashing the throat of the Indian general who oversaw the 1984 assault on Amritsar Golden Temple.
Two men and a woman were convicted of attacking retired lieutenant general Kuldip Singh Brar, 78, as he walked through London's West End entertainment district with his wife Meena on September 30 last year.
Another man has pleaded guilty to the attack.
The court heard the gang targeted Brar in revenge for his leading role in the attack - Operation Blue Star - against Sikh militants in Amritsar, northwest India, which left at least 500 people dead.
