Indian general who led Golden Temple raid stabbed in England

by

The now-retired Indian army general who helped lead India in the deadly 1984 raid on the Golden Temple in Amritsar against Sikh militants was stabbed in London. It appears it was an assassination attempt.

Lt. Gen. Kuldeep Singh Brar, 78, was attacked by four men and slashed in the neck while walking with his wife near London’s Oxford Street. He was treated in a London hospital, then released.

London police are treating the attack as an attempted murder, but haven’t figured out a motive for it yet.

Brar has already linked the attack to his role in the Golden Temple raid, which killed more than 1,000.
