The Assassinations Of Indira And Rajiv Gandhi
The History Channel April 22, 2010

Indira Gandhi, Prime Minister of India, was assassinated on 31 October 31 1984 by her Sikh bodyguards as she walked in the garden of her New Delhi home. It appeared that her murder was an act of revenge for her orders to storm the Sikh's holiest shrine at Amristar in 1983. Six years later, on 21 May 21 1991 in Sriperumbudur, near Madras, her eldest son Rajiv was also assassinated by Khan separatists in a bomb explosion.
