    Austrian police have arrested four Indian men suspected of planning an attack that could be linked to a deadly shooting at a Sikh temple in Vienna last year, the interior ministry said on Thursday.

    The men were arrested on Wednesday during a lecture given by a guru at the temple in Oberwaltersdorf, south of Vienna.

    The national security and counter-terrorism bureau suspected them of planning an attack on the gathering, which had attracted some 800 faithful, the daily Kurier wrote.

    The four are thought to belong to the Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), a separatist group seeking the creation of a Sikh state in India's Punjab state.

    Prosecution spokeswoman Michaela Schnell noted that a link with the attack at the Vienna temple in May 2009, in which a visiting guru was killed, "cannot be ruled out."

    Six men are currently on trial for last year's attack. Reports at the time had said the KZF had claimed responsibility for the incident.

    A religious row between orthodox Sikh groups was believed to be behind that attack, prosecutors said.
