Kin of Indira Gandhi's assassins honoured in Amritsar

Amritsar, Oct 31 : The kin of the two assassins of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was killed by her bodyguards Oct 31, 1984, were Thursday honoured by Sikh hardliners and some religious leaders at the Golden Temple complex here.


The kin of Beant Singh and Satwant Singh, who shot dead Gandhi in her official residence in New Delhi 29 years ago, were honoured by the head of Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of Sikh religion, and leaders of radical Sikh groups like Damdami Taksal and Dal Khalsa in the presence of officials of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).

Beant Singh's son, Sarabjit Singh was presented with a silver plaque. The son of Kehar Singh, who was convicted for the assassination conspiracy, was also honoured.

Addressing the gathering, radical leaders urged the SGPC to construct a memorial for the three at the Golden Temple complex. A resolution was passed on the occasion which was handed over to 'Jathedar' of Akal Takht for implementation.
