    Two charged over Lt-Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar stabbing

    Lt-Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar led a raid on Sikhism's holiest shrine which saw hundreds die

    Two men have been charged over the stabbing of an Indian general during a visit to London.

    Lt-Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar, 78, was attacked in Old Quebec Street, near Oxford Street, last week.

    Counter-terrorism officers investigating the attack arrested 12 people following searches at addresses in London and the Midlands.

    Two men have been charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm on the retired officer.

    Barjinder Singh Sangha, 33, of Wolverhampton, and Mandeep Singh Sandhu, 34 of Great Barr, Birmingham, are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court later.

    Mr Singh Sangha is also charged with common assault in relation to Mr Singh Brar's wife Meena.

    Following the attack on 30 September, Mr Brar was taken to hospital with a neck wound and has since been discharged.

    He led the 1984 raid on Sikhism's holiest shrine, which saw hundreds die when troops flushed Sikh separatist militants out of the Golden Temple in Amritsar in Punjab state.

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!
