The World : 3 Sikhs Sought in Slaying

Indian police launched a hunt for three Sikh militant leaders accused in the mob murder of a guard at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The guard was killed and seven people were injured when armed militants rampaged through the temple complex after a rally marking the anniversary of the 1984 Indian army assault on the temple to dislodge Sikh extremists. Police arrested 307 people in connection with the latest violence and were searching throughout Punjab state for Bimal Kaur Khalsa, the widow of one of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassins; Jagjit Singh, a former Indian army major, and Talib Singh Sandhu, a dissident Sikh politician.
