Brar's native village residents pray for his recovery

Moga: The residents of Patto Hira Singh, native village of 'Operation Blue star' hero Lt General (retd) Kuldeep Singh Brar on Monday held prayers in the local gurdwara for his early recovery.

Describing Brar as a "valiant and fearless" General of the Army, villagers in this district said his military training helped him to survive the attack in London.

Similar prayers were also held yesterday at the residence of Jagmohan Singh Brar, a cousin of the retired general.

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 in London when he was attacked by four men, suspected to be Khalistan sympathisers, while he was returning to his hotel with his wife.
