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.
