Two more arrests in Indian general stabbing investigation

16:41 22 November 2012

Detectives investigating the attempted murder of an Indian general near Marble Arch have made two more arrests.

A 36-year-old man was held in London on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent over an attack on Lieutenant General Kuldeep Singh Brar.

Lt-Gen Brar, who was involved in a military operation against Sikh militants in 1984 that left around 1,000 people dead, had his neck slashed as he walked with his wife on Old Quebec Street near Marble Arch early last month.

A 55-year-old woman was also held today on suspicion of assisting an offender and later released on bail.

The arrests, in Hammersmith and Fulham, are the latest in a series made by officers investigating the attack.

Two men - Barjinder Singh Sangha, 33, from Wolverhampton, and Mandeep Singh Sandhu, 34, from Great Barr, Birmingham - have been charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Singh Sangha also stands charged with the common assault of Meena Brar, the general’s wife.

They are due to appear next at Southwark Crown Court on December 7 for a plea and case management hearing.
