    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
