Ludhiana (November 06, 2009): The Amritsar-New Delhi Swarn Shatabdi was stopped by protesters, who are seeking justice for the victims of the November 1984 anti-Sikh carnage, at the Ludhiana railway station this morning. The train, which left Amritsar station early Friday, was stranded at the Ludhiana station with over 600 Delhi-bound passengers, says some media reports.
Thousands of Sikhs were killed in Delhi and other places across India after the assassination of Indira Gandhi, the then prime minister of India. Indira was responsible for ordering attack on various Sikh Gurudwaras including Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar in June 1984 and was killed by Bhai Beant Singh and Satwant Singh on 31 October, 1984.
Sikhs have lamented that even 25 years after the carnage, the guilty have not been punished.
