Indian general in Golden Temple raid stabbed in London attack
LONDON (AP) - An Indian army general who helped lead a deadly 1984 raid on Sikhism's holiest shrine has been stabbed and wounded in London.
Lieutenant General Kuldeep Singh Brar told Indian media that the attack by four men was an assassination attempt.
The general was involved in the storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar to flush out Sikh militants, an operation in which more than 1,000 people were killed.
London's Metropolitan Police have appealed for witnesses to Sunday's stabbing, which happened near the busy Oxford Street shopping area. The 78-year-old victim was slashed in the neck and described the attackers as four bearded men wearing dark clothing.
