India's Elections Commission said that September elections will take place in troubled Punjab state despite calls for delay by moderate Sikhs who fear a new wave of terror by Sikh separatists. The commission, saying it has been assured that order can be maintained, scheduled elections Sept. 25 for a 117-member state assembly and 13 national Parliament members. Punjab has been under federal rule since October, 1983.
