Lt Gen Brar's stabbing: UK police file charges against two

London: British police say two people have been charged over the stabbing of retired Lt Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar who played a key role in Operation Bluestar at Golden Temple, Amritsar.

Scotland Yard has arrested 12 people since Lt Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar had his neck slashed by assailants on London's busy Oxford Street shopping area on 30 September.

Brar has said he believes the attack was an assassination attempt linked to his role in the 1984 assault on the Golden Temple in Amritsar, in which more than 1,000 people were killed.
