April 11, 1986

Sikh extremists and Indian police traded gunfire in four separate clashes in Punjab state, leaving 10 people dead, including seven of the Sikh militants. In one incident, two railroad guards were killed when four extremists took over a passenger train as it was about to leave a village station about 20 miles from the Sikh holy city of Amritsar. Police said two gunmen delayed the train's departure while the other two sprayed about 50 bullets around the compartment used by police guards, who travel on all Punjab trains.
