Two men of Indian-origin have been charged with the attempted murder of Lt Gen (retd) Kuldip Singh Brar, the hero of the 1984 Operation Bluestar, British police said Monday.
Barjinder Singh Sangha, 33, of Wolverhampton and 34-year-old Mandeep Singh Sandhu of Great Barr, Birmingham will "appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court today," the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
"Two men have been charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm on Lieutenant-General Kuldip Singh Brar in Old Quebec Street," the statement said.
Sangha has also been charged with common assault of Meena Brar, wife of Lt Gen Brar.
Brar, 78, who had led 'Operation Bluestar' in 1984 to flush out pro-Khalistan militants from the Golden Temple, was on a private visit here when he was attacked by four men, suspected to be Khalistan sympathisers, while he was returning to his hotel with his wife.
He suffered a wound on his neck and cheek but his wife was not injured in the attack.
The 10 other people held as part of the investigation had been bailed earlier.
