India's Sikhs seek justice over 1984 killings

Families of victims killed in aftermath of Indira Gandhi's assassination still push for legal action.

    It has been nearly 30 years, but the families and survivors of 3,000 Indian Sikhs killed after the assassination of Indira Gandhi, the former prime minister, are still seeking legal recompense for their losses. 

    The Congress Party, including its Sikh prime minister, have apologised three times for the 1984 killings, but victims and their families continue to press for legal action against the perpetrators.
