The World

September 25, 1985

Two Hindu politicians died after eating apparently poisoned Sikh holy bread offered by two young men during a campaign stop in Amritsar in the Indian state of Punjab, where elections are to be held today. The victims were campaign organizers for Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's Congress-I Party. In another incident, two bombs hidden in lunch boxes exploded in Ludhiana, injuring three people. The incidents were apparently linked to a campaign by Sikh militants for a boycott of the elections.
