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.
