Three accused in UK court over stabbing of Lt Gen Brar
London: Three men appeared in a British court on Friday in connection with the attack on Lt Gen (retd) Kuldip Singh Brar, the hero of the 1984 Operation Bluestar, and have been ordered to remain in custody.
Barjinder Singh Sangha, 33, Mandeep Singh Sandhu, 34, and Dilbag Singh, 36, briefly appeared in Southwark Crown Court in London today, the media here reported.
The suspects will appear in court again on January 18.
They have been charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm on the retired Indian army officer. Sangha has also been charged with common assault of Meena Brar, wife of Lt Gen Brar.
Brar, 78, who had led `Operation Blue Star` in 1984 to flush out pro-Khalistan militants from the Golden Temple, was on a private visit here when he was attacked on September 30 by a gang of four people, suspected to be Khalistan sympathisers, while he was returning to his hotel with his wife.
He suffered a wound on his neck and cheek but his wife was not injured in the attack. He was taken to a hospital and later discharged.
