October 22, 1985

Suspected Sikh militants shot two Indian government workers to death when one of the victims tried to stop a toll-booth robbery at a checkpoint in Kashmir, across the border from Sikh-dominated Punjab. The violence follows the killings within the last week of two local leaders of Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's Congress Party in Punjab. Police in Kashmir said earlier that they had broken up a Sikh terrorist group operating there, in Punjab and in New Delhi with the arrest of six leaders of a previously unknown band called the Saffron Tigers.
