Three men appear in court accused of stabbing Indian general

Three people have appeared in court today, accused of stabbing an Indian general in central London.

Lieutenant General Kuldeep Singh Brar was set upon by a gang of four people during a visit to the capital.

Barjinder Singh Sangha, 33, of Wolverhampton, Mandeep Singh Sandhu, 34, of Great Barr, Birmingham, and Dilbag Singh, 36, of no fixed address, appeared at a preliminary hearing at Southwark Crown Court.

They are charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The retired general was involved in a military operation against Sikh militants in Armritsar in 1984 that left an estimated 1,000 people dead.

The three defendants were remanded in custody for a plea and case management hearing on January 18th.
